Freeman Farm at Old Sturbridge Village

This summer, Old Sturbridge Village and Brian Clowdus Experiences bring the beloved story of Charlotte’s Web to life at the Freeman Farm with a live musical production based on the classic and beloved tale by E.B. White. This production is a reinvented version of the story, set in a timeless New England era that honors the 1830s but with a modern license to breathe fresh air into the story!

In addition to the performance, tour the Village for a “Charlotte’s Web Summer” where you can visit our adorable piglets, see costumed historians re-constructing the Allen Piggery, weaving and spinning yarn, blacksmithing, farming, making tin objects, and demonstrating other aspects of 19th-century life, and special exhibits.

An abundance of dining options will be available throughout the museum including our Tap Room Restaurant, Bullard Tavern Café, Ice Cream Shop, as well as a Charlotte’s Web-themed eatery and concession adjacent to the performance area.

The cast features 6 talented actors, many of whom you may remember from last summer’s production of Big River at Old Sturbridge Village. See the cast members and bios here.

Written by Joseph Robinette, based on the book by E.B. White

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Illinois
