Not Just a Beach Vacation…


Charleston is a wealth of charm and history. Enhance your beach vacation by visiting beautiful Downtown Charleston and its many museums and famous sites!

Mimosas & Mystery Old Time Radio HourVolunteers from the audience are invited to play alongside the cast in this chamber theatre style ode to the old-timey radio mystery. Our favorite famous fictional detectives find themselves embroiled in a Holy City whodunit. Staged as a live radio broadcast, the Black Fedora gang will look to the audience for help in telling the story, providing sound effects, and simply laughing loudly and often.

Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness Garden, Gun & Gin Club MysteryThe Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since back when such decent ladies knew their place in society, before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts ruined everything. And certainly there had been more than a few meetings which dissolved into a bit of hair-pullin’, heir-provin’, and homemade hare-puddin’ pitching. Still until this new sort of female up and invited herself, the crème of Charleston’s ladies hadn’t ever had to dirty their white gloves with something so revoltingly common as a … murder! Featuring the five o’clock shadow blue-haired detectives (the more masculine cast members, which might not be saying a lot), it’s a murder mystery with manners.
