Osceola’s Muse

Friday Oct 11, 2019
Category/Venue: Pure Theatre

Show runs Fri Oct 11 – Sat Oct 19

Pure Theatre
Battery Gadsden Cultural Center, Sullivan's Island
Presents: Osceola's Muse
A collaboration in benefit of the
Battery Gadsden Cultural Center

On Sullivan’s Island where Osceola is buried, his spirit still looms. The overgrown remnants of Fort Moultrie batteries give an inkling of the conditions he and his tribe endured while prisoners there. Fables of his bravery and leadership blow on the sea breezes as historians continue to debate the issues of deceit and heroism that framed this important part of South Carolina history.

Partnering with artistic collaborators including Jonathan Green, Osceola’s Muse will include live actors, music, original costumes and scenery along with audience interaction inside and around Battery Gadsden to dramatize the Seminoles’ time on Sullivan’s Island where the tribe was held captive. Using artistic license, this highly interactive theatre experience will juxtapose authentic history with spectacle to provide an entertaining experience that is historically based as well as enlightening.

This is A Who’s Who Murder Mystery

Recommended for: Sherlockians and those who like a good laugh
Rated: PG for mild innuendo

It was the Holmes family secret. A secret so dark, so disturbing that Sherlock and brother Mycroft vowed upon their father’s death it would forever be buried with the Holmes patriarch. It was the secret of ... the other Holmes brother! But when murder comes to Charleston with the annual convention of hero sidekicks, it will be up to you to determine what's what ... and who's who!

Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora

Finally, there is peace throughout the universe — no battles, no dark forces, no need for a military fleet. And so the Federation of Planets reassigned their fleet of starships. One ship — the Fed Ora — has been designated for just such an assignment ... cruise ship. A space cruise ship. Captain Quirk and his nine starship officers long for space adventures of old, but an anonymous gift brings more excitement than they may want.

An original sci-fi comic, audience-interactive mystery — Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora — now playing at the Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre..

The Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since long before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts replaced good Southern decency. But now the "ladies" (and audience recruits) must band together to overcome the greatest invaders to the Southern way of life since General Sherman and the palmetto bug. For today marks the first time the Club has ever opened up the floor to men ... and ... shudder ... Yankees!

Since 2012, the longest continually running show in Charleston — a madcap whodunit in the tradition of Clue!

Mr. Body has been murdered, and while bumbling Inspector NoClue matches wits with a redneck butler, a gold-digging French maid, and a hopelessly hapless hippie, it will be up to the audience to deduce the murderer, motive and weapon! Featuring roles for volunteer audience actors.

The play features scenes from Poe’s own stories, The Telltale Heart, The Gold Bug, The Cask of the Amontillado, and more, and includes Poe’s real visit to Sullivan’s Island in 1817, where some speculate he met the love of his life —Annabelle Lee.
