'The show must go on' at Sleepy Hollow despite vandalism

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - Sunday staff at Sleepy Hollow Theatre showed up to find the dressing room broken into and vandalized.

At least a thousand dollars of damage to costumes and props is estimated by the executive director.

Bismarck police are investigating the incident.

Snapchat video reveals a couple of boys breaking the window of the dressing room, spray-painting by the vanity mirror and attempting to flip a portable restroom.

Bismarck police have not yet matched the identities of those in the video.

Despite all of the damage, the theatre's executive director Susan Lundberg says the show must go on. Cast members worked late Sunday night to clean up the damage.

Many of the actors and actresses were disappointed they had to cancel the show Sunday night, but they plan on making Monday’s performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat really count.

Admission ranges from free to about $30 depending on your age and seating preference.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is put on by ninth and tenth-graders, and it starts at 8 p.m.
