The Sleepy Hollow Experience
After last year's sold-out run of The Sleepy Hollow Experience at Old Sturbridge Village, the museum is again joining forces with Brian Clowdus Experiences to bring the immersive theatrical experience back to the Village. At The Sleepy Hollow Experience, guests will be ghoulishly guided through the Villages countryside where they will encounter Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones and quite possibly the Headless Horseman. Please note that each outdoor performance is approximately 1.5 hours long, and requires standing and walking. Performances are rain or shine. If the evening is a rainout, a modified version of The Sleepy Hollow Experience will take place in Old Sturbridge Village's Stephen M. Brewer Theater.

When: Sep 27, 2017 12am to Oct 29, 2017 12am in Sturbridge, MA

Sleepy Hollow at Old Sturbridge Village (SOLD OUT!)

Last year, Old Sturbridge Village joined forces with producer/director Brian Clowdus to bring The Sleepy Hollow Experience to Old Sturbridge Village and sold out a full run of 31 shows.

Recognized as one of the country's top five Halloween plays by American Theatre Magazine, The Sleepy Hollow Experience is an immersive, outdoor theatrical experience that reimagines Washington Irving's iconic 1820's tale.

At The Sleepy Hollow Experience, guests will be ghoulishly guided through the Village's countryside where they will encounter Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones and quite possibly the Headless Horseman.

Please note that each outdoor performance is approximately 1.5 hours long, and requires standing and walking. Performances are rain or shine. If the evening is a rainout, a modified version of the The Sleepy Hollow Experience will take place in Old Sturbridge Village's Stephen M. Brewer Theater.

Haunted by History: A Phantasmagoria

Old Sturbridge Village presents Haunted by History: A Phantasmagoria, October 18-29, 2017 during the Village's regular open hours. Guests gather outside The Center Meeting House where they meet Dr. Lantornia, a mysterious showman who promises them he can conjure spirits from New England's past in his "Phantasmagoria." He leads them into the darkened meeting house, where they participate in a séance, encountering the ghosts of several New England figures who died in the 19th century with unfinished business, including abolitionist writer Lydia Maria Childs, millionaire industrialist Samuel Colt, decorated naval officer Commodore Mathew Perry, Zerah "The Human Calculator" Colburn and prison reform activist Dorothea Dix. The séance goes awry when we find out all is not as it seems and Dr. Lantornia has ulterior motives for his Phantasmagoria. HAUNTED BY HISTORY is written and directed by P.J. Griffith who created last year's popular Midwinter Mischief immersive adventure at the Village and starred in the 2016 cast of The Sleepy Hollow Experience. His recent credits include St. Jimmy in American Idiot on Broadway, Leon Czolgoscz in Assassins at Yale Repertory Theater, Sleep No More, the acclaimed immersive theatrical experience Off-Broadway, and Jett Rink in The Public Theater's premiere of Giant. P.J. received the 2010 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Performance for Setup and Punch at The Blank Theater and the 2017 New York Musical Theater Festival Award for Outstanding Lead Performance for Georama. He can be seen guest starring in an upcoming episode of Blue Bloods on CBS this fall, as well as on Gotham, Jessica Jones and The Good Wife. The cast of HAUNTED BY HISTORY consists of four gifted actors from NYC, led by Jake A. Robertson (Torn Out Theater's Hamlet) as Dr. Lantornia. The performance also features Kirby Cernosek as Lydia Maria Child/Dorothea Dix, Sam Urdang as Samuel Colt/Zerah Colburn and Nathan Pecchia as Commodore Matthew Perry.
