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!

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.

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

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Illinois

On the day of the final performances, August 26, please join us at 12:30 pm in the Center Meetinghouse at Old Sturbridge Village to meet Lindsay Morand, E.B. White’s grandniece! Morand has shared her E.B. White scrapbook, personal photos, and letters in 17 countries and most of the United States over the past 40 years. Don’t miss this very special program, included with regular admission to the Village.
