Sherlock's Other Brother by a Southern Mother

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..

Garden, Gun, and Gin Club
Show runs through Dec 29, 2019

This is A Murder Mystery ... with Manners
Recommended for: Fans of farce — Southern style
Rated: PG with men in dresses and mild innuendo

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!

Inspector NoClue's Murder Mystery

This is A Classic Comic Whodunit
Recommended for: Comedy lovers and couples/friends out on the town (and away from the kids)
Rated: PG-13 (Contains humor perhaps inappropriate for pre-teens)

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.

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons

Start Date: 29 Jun 2019
Category/Venue: The Gaillard Center

Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Rag Doll,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are all the rage all over again.

But please don’t say that Frankie is back. The truth is, he never went away. Sure, the majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1’s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear. He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing, Mrs. Doubtfire, Conspiracy Theory and The Wanderers.

 


 

Ladybug Release at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

Start Date: 20 Jul 2019
Category/Venue: Miscellaneous

Saturday July 20, 9am to 2pm

Magnolia Plantation & Gardens invites Lowcountry families to participate in our 6th Annual Ladybug Release! On Saturday, July 20th, 200,000 ladybugs will be released in the gardens in an effort to help control other small, more harmful insects such as aphids and scale insects.

The event will be held from 9am-2pm and the distribution of ladybugs will begin at approximately 10 am with the arrival of a Volkswagen Beetle resembling a gigantic ladybug. Hundreds of children will then scatter throughout the gardens to find the perfect spot to release their share of ladybugs. The event will also feature exhibits including nature displays, interactive activities, environmental organizations and face painting. It’s a great way for children to learn how they can help preserve and protect our natural environment.
