What really happened after “happily ever after?”

VincentThis summer at Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, RI, 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 Coggeshall Farm Museum will also feature music by Briana White, an acoustic/pop musician from Providence, RI. Using her guitar as both a string and percussion instrument, with the help of her loop pedal, she creates unique harmonies and rhythms that are sure to entertain.

Please read our COVID-19 related policies now and closer to the time that you come to Fairy Tale Farm, as policies are subject to change.

Plus: Enjoy a Stroll Through a StoryWalk®

This July, Coggeshall Farm Museum will also bring back The StoryWalk Project as part of our Fairytale Farm Program, July 10-31. StoryWalk® is the perfect way to enjoy Coggeshall’s outdoor site and read a classic children’s book at the same time. This season’s StoryWalk® is “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” as retold and illustrated by James Marshall. Originally published in 1988, Marshall’s retelling of this well-known fairytale is filled with humor and whimsy, the perfect companion to the Fairytale Farm Program. The StoryWalk® is available for viewing anytime Coggeshall is open to the public in the month of July.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

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 Points, Tommy Thunder’s Heavy Metal Lighting Show, and Nevermore: The Fantastic Terrors of Edgar Allan Poe (performed at Old Sturbridge Village and Coggeshall Farm Museum).
