What really happened after “happily ever after?”

Pinocchio This August at Old Sturbridge Village, experience your favorite fairy tale characters as you’ve never seen them before. Guests will experience an enchanted farm and meet characters from several beloved fairy tales, all now living beside each other at Fairy Tale Farm.

Map in hand, guests will walk to various buildings that become the stage for each performance. Characters step out of their “homes” for the first time since the pandemic and are faced with real-world, grown-up issues;

Hilarity is bound to ensue as characters they thought they’ve known since childhood finally decide to get real.

Fairy Tale Farm at Old Sturbridge Village will also feature music by Gracie Day, a New England musician known for a fun mixture of rock, folk, and soul in her music.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, sandwiches, ice cream, and snacks will also be available for purchase! See menu below.

This theatrical experience was created by P.J. Griffith and produced in partnership with  ClockJack Productions, who brought last year’s hit Halloween theatrical experience Nevermore to Coggeshall Farm Museum.

Gracie Day (Music)

Gracie Day released her first EP in November of 2017 and quickly won attention for her songwriting, singing and performances, achieving “Best New Act” in 2017 and “Best in State for CT” in 2018 at the New England Music Awards, an organization that acknowledges musical acts throughout all six states. Also, in 2018, Day was a semi-finalist in the international Unsigned Only Songwriting Contest, and nominated in the prestigious Boston Music Awards. Her song “Tennessee,” that gained tens of thousands of plays on Spotify and landed various radio placements. Recorded at the famous Sound Emporium, a legendary studio with a roster of everyone from Johnny Cash, REM, to Alabama Shakes, Gracie Day’s new EP “The Nashville Sessions” was just released in December 2019 . Gracie is currently recording her first full-length album.

Before her recent move to Massachusetts, Gracie Day lived in the greater Hartford, Connecticut area where she first started performing music and establishing herself in the arts community. Her episode of the TV show “Amplify” on Connecticut’s PBS was nominated for an Emmy in the New England Chapter. Despite winning “Best Folk Band” in CTNow’s Best of Hartford Reader’s Poll in 2017, the genre “Folk” does not quite describe the mixture of rock and soul in her sound. Day cites her parents’ music of the 60’s and 70’s having the largest initial influence on her love of music.

P.J. Griffith (Writer and Director)

P.J. Griffith is a writer/director/performer based out of New York City with an extensive background in theater, television and museum programming, working on both sides of the proverbial camera. As the Artistic Director of Clockjack Productions, he has focused on the creation of innovative, site-specific, immersive theatrical experiences.

Through Clockjack Productions, P.J. blends his background in the entertainment industry with his life-long love of museums. His work is rooted in finding a narrative that exists within a museum’s vision which a contemporary audience can connect to, then executing that story as an original theatrical production, using unexpected locations. Guests are given autonomy as the “fourth wall” is shattered, forcing them to engage a collection they have been thrust into from the opening moment until the final blackout. His recent productions include; Midwinter Mischief for Old Sturbridge Village (winner of the 2018 International Museum Alliance Joe Lipsky Award for Excellence in Playwriting), Haunted by History – A Phantasmagoria (also for OSV), Pathway to the Ballot Box, Haunted Manhattan – The Five PointsTommy Thunder’s Heavy Metal Lighting Show, and Nevermore: The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe (performed at Old Sturbridge Village and Coggeshall Farm Museum).
