There’s nothing like experiencing history in a beautiful outdoor setting. Multiple outdoor shows daily in Upstate South Carolina at the Mauldin Cultural Center Amphitheater. Additional outdoor shows in North Carolina at the Warren Wilson College Pavilion and the Transylvania County Library Amphitheater.
There will be great story-telling, lots to laugh about, and deep secrets revealed. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because you’re a part of the show. It’s not just history – it’s personal.
