12 Days of Christmas Giveaways Guide

December 2, 2018




Day 1 

A Family 4-Pack of tickets to the production of "A Gullah Christmas Wish" 



The production of "A Gullah Christmas Wish" taking place in Beaufort, SC on Friday, Dec. 7. next Saturday. We know it's a ride but we are so happy to introduce this show to our subscribers and give you a chance to see it. I have seen it 2 or 3 times myself and it is amazing. In addition to the show, you will be served an authentic Gullah meal and the opportunity to buy artwork and other merchandise from local artisans. The show takes place on the first night of the Holiday Sea Island Celebration. 

Anita Singleton-Prather is a veteran educator, master storyteller, and ordained minister. Her character, Aunt Pearlie Sue, represents the relative you didn’t know you had. As a theatrical fount for Gullah — billed as “the most authentic African culture in America” — she distills the complicated past of colonialism to reveal a heritage whose link to Africa is both unquestionable and indispensable.  

The set takes place in December of 1860 and it's the last Christmas before the Civil War and Reconstruction begins. Masters in the “Big House” are talking about the war coming while servants are in their quarters talking about freedom coming. You'll laugh, you'll cry, sing and dance along with the actors in this high-energy show.  If you've never been to Beaufort, you will want to join Aunt Pearlie Sue & The Gullah Kinfolk as they bring all that history alive during a special Yuletide Season Celebration on the Sea Islands of historic Beaufort South Carolina – the real Wakanda! - And if you can't make it, we'll allow you to gift the tickets.

Day 4 

Two tickets to Serenbe Playhouse's "The Snow Queen"



From the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale that inspired Frozen, The Snow Queen lights up the wintry Serenbe woods with the whimsical story of love’s sovereign power over evil. Back for an exciting fifth season, this Playhouse holiday tradition is beloved by kids ages 1 to 101. Watch as Gerda overcomes fear on a journey to save her brother, Kai, from the Snow Queen’s powerful enchantment before her icy spirit overtakes his heart. Ring in the holiday season with this strikingly beautiful adaptation in which love proves stronger than cynicism, complete with a celebratory snowfall at the end of the play — a crowd favorite to mark the end the year for Serenbe Playhouse.
