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, musical theater 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 you choose not to come to the show and the performance goes on, there are absolutely no refunds. If a rainout occurs, the show will be rescheduled.

One and a half hours before showtime, guests can enjoy hot soups and chowder, snacks, sweets and libations (beer, wine, and cocktails). When you purchase your show tickets, you have the opportunity to pre-purchase a hearty soup/chowder meal for an additional $9 (this meal will also be available for purchase the night of the show for $10). Soup meal options include:

  • Beef Stew served with Bread
  • New England Clam Chowder served with Bread
  • Garden Vegetable Tomato Soup (Vegan & Gluten-Free) served with Bread or Gluten-Free Roll

Additionally, sweets and libations will be available for purchase 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.

  • Ichabod’s Tavern opens at 6 PM for 7:30 PM performances
  • Ichabod’s Tavern opens at 8 PM for  9:30 PM performances
