Crabpot Players Present: Greater Tuna

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals.
The show began as a simple party skit based on a political cartoon more than 25 years ago in Austin, Texas. Talented creators Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard were the imaginative authors that parlayed the sketch into a critically acclaimed production which has entertained audiences across the country ever since.

Scottish Games & Highland Gathering

The Scottish Games and Highland Gathering, featured each September at Boone Hall Plantation, is another one of the special events held at the plantation that makes Boone Hall one of the most unique venues in the Charleston, SC Lowcountry. It features a day packed full of various activities and events that has something for everyone – Scottish style. Whether you’re looking to experience Olympic type competition of the heavy athletics sporting events or the mastery of Scottish music, the Scottish Games and Highland Gathering will offer all you’re looking for and so much more.

The music featured at this annual gathering of Scottish family clans, is a truly unique experience. The music of over 25 bagpipe bands echoes through the plantation’s large oaks and across scenic marshes with sounds that are truly classical Scottish fare. There is Highland Dancing that dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries, Scottish Country Dancing & Fiddling, and Celtic rock bands dressed in kilts.

The Border Collie Demo features some of the most beautiful dogs in the world. The Border Collie was developed in the Border Country of Scotland, an area long known for its sheep industry. In fact, it has been said that without the Border Collie, there would be no sheep industry. Today, this breed of dog is known the world over for its intelligence and livestock-working ability.

There are Children’s games, loosely fashioned after the Heavy Athletics, and much more.

The visual experience of this event promises to leave an impression that will be long remembered. Last year, over 6,000 people from all over the world attended these games, put on for charity that benefits the Scottish Society Of Charleston.
