Old Sturbridge Village, The Sleepy Hollow Experience

October 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30pm, repeating until November 4, 2018

After two fantastic, sold out runs of the Sleepy Hollow Experience at Old Sturbridge Village last year, the legendary story returns September 26 – November 4. You won’t want to miss this popular Halloween event.

Old Sturbridge Village once again joins with producer/director Brian Clowdus to bring The Sleepy Hollow Experience to the Village. 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 Sleepy Hollow Experience will take place in Old Sturbridge Village’s Stephen M. Brewer Theater.

One and a half hours before show time, guests can enjoy hot soups and chowder, snacks and sweets. When you purchase your show tickets, you have the opportunity to pre-purchase a hearty soup/chowder meal for an additional $8. Additionally, sweets (and libations) will be available for purchase during intermission. Beer, wine, and cocktails will be available before the show and during intermission. You must have a valid photo ID in order to purchase any alcohol. Guests are welcome to enjoy their libations during the performance.

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 – Sunday, November 4, 2018 (Some shows are already SOLD OUT – buy your tickets today!)
