There was no sleeping in Sleepy Hollow when Washington Irving's classic tale of the headless horseman versus schoolmaster Ichabod Crane galloped onto the Pearl Tyner Auditorium stage last weekend.

The Crestview High School drama department and Thespian Society production was punchy and fun, with exquisite costuming, perfect casting and a nice, moody backdrop.

Some good news and bad news came from the production.

Bad news first:

Just when we get to see what he can do in a starring role, senior Carmine Harrell, who played Ichabod, is graduating and planning to study music at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Good for Carmine, bad for us.

More bad news.
