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.

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

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Illinois
