"'Twas the Night Before Christmas" Dioramas

Where
Chapman Cultural Center 200 E St John St, Spartanburg, SC 29306 [ Map ]
Description
The dioramas illustrate Clement Clarke Moore's famous poem, "A Visit From St. Nicholas" and were built in the late 1950s by James Buchanan. Buchanan was a local artist and a founder of Spartanburg County Historical Association as well as the first director of Walnut Grove Plantation. These painstakingly crafted scenes were displayed in the windows of Aug W. Smith department store in downtown Spartanburg during the holiday season until the store closed in the 1980s. Today they reside in the collections of Spartanburg Regional History Museum and are brought out each December to be appreciated once more.

This year, SCHA invites families to Spartanburg Regional History Museum for a "Night Before Christmas" event to view the dioramas. The afternoon's festivities will include a reading of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," hot beverages, toymaking, and more!

DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Where
300 South Main Street Greenville, SC 29601 [ Map ]
Description
Now on a lavish and visually re-imagined new tour presented by NETworks, Beauty and the Beast is one of best-loved of all musicals.. Its classic story -- of a beautiful village girl, Belle, who is first repelled by, then attracted to a gruff yet big-hearted Beast --is indeed, as one of the show's numbers has it, "a tale as old as time." The songs (music by Alan Menken; lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice) are almost criminally tuneful. And the musical's appeal crosses age barriers: truly, "Beauty" is an experience that can be enjoyed by child and adult alike.
