If you’re planning on attending an event that’s a little more than out of the ordinary, look no further than The Black Fedora, Charleston’s premier “Comedy Mystery Theatre”. You may hear about your buddies’ grand times at their dinner theatres and parties, but nothing comes close to the unique experience TBF provides its audience.
They claim to be the city’s go-to for anyone who appreciates the suspense of a mystery or a good laugh. And if you like both? All the more reason to get out there and enjoy what the venue brings to the table.
On most evenings, the theatre will run five interactive shows:
Inspector NoClue’s Murder Mystery— The longest running show in South Carolina, this show is perfect for adults taking advantage of a break from their parenting duties.
Sherlock Holmes and the Charleston History Mystery— This show is made for the history buff (especially of the Charleston Persuasion) or die-hards of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Join the famed detective on a mission to solve a seemingly impossible murder.
Captain Blackbeard’s Sing-Off Smack Down— Those who appreciate surreal and far-out humor in the vein of Monty Python can really get down with this raucous, karaoke-fueled musical romp.
Heist, Heist Baby— A fast talking, campy adventure that takes audience interaction to a whole new level.
Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness Garden, Gun, and Gin Club— Set in a post-bellum South, this story revolves around an exclusive ladies-only social club that is for the first time opening it’s doors to both men and Yanks.
The Kriss Kross— This holiday-themed theatrical jaunt recruits the audience to help solve a special holiday mystery.

If you’re a sports fan, you may want to check out the Volvo Car Open, which has the distinction of being the world’s largest women’s only tournament. Held this year from April 2-10, spectators will be treated to spectacular play by some of the world’s finest talent’s.
About the Open
The Volvo has its roots all the way back in 1973, and has always prided itself on creating a competitive atmosphere for women’s sports. In fact, it has been at the forefront of the popularization of women’s tennis.
The first edition of the Open was held in Hilton Head, at a time when women were beginning to demand the same recognition of men sports. Few companies were willing to sponsor women’s sports at the time, marking the beginning of an uphill battle for the respect that they deserved. But then, women’s Tennis was blessed with the sponsorship of Family Circle Magazine. From the beginning, the Open was a tournament of firsts:
1st women’s tennis tournament with a $100,000 purse
The first champion, Rosie Casals got a check for $30,000, which was the largest prize ever women by a female athlete in the whole year.
1st women’s sporting event to be broadcast live on T.V.
In 2001, the Family Circle Open moved from Hilton Head to Charleston. Over a decade later, Family Circle partnered with Volvo, and the tournament took on the ame of the car company as its brand.
