Event Description
Haints, Haunts and a Gothic Goodnight


Spend an evening under the stars and moss-draped trees in Brookgreen Garden's Arboretum, enjoying a Lowcountry buffet dinner followed by ghost tales from Gullah Geechee folklore told by Ron Daise, and gothic fiction performed by actor and horror icon Bill Oberst Jr., all under a waning crescent moon and the moss-draped trees in Brookgreen Garden's Arboretum. 

The evening will begin with a Lowcountry Supper buffet provided by Inlet Affairs. 

After dinner, Ron Daise, famed Gullah Geechee storyteller, will take the stage and share Gullah Geechee stories of Haints, Hags, and Plat-eyes that may have you checking your closets when you go home. 

Then, Los Angeles-based actor and Georgetown County native Bill Oberst Jr. will present a "Gothic Goodnight." The Emmy-winner will recite two Edgar Allan Poe classics: The Cask Of Amontillado and The Raven, plus W.W. Jacobs' The Monkey's Paw, in a 50-minute burst of vocal gymnastics under the oaks as an autumn moon rises. Oberst says the program is inspired by his Audible/Apple podcast Bill Oberst Jr.'s Gothic Goodnight, which features the actor performing bedtime selections of short gothic fiction. "I'm memorizing each piece in the author's original lush language for these special Brookgreen Gardens performances," says Oberst, "after all, it is Halloween weekend - one must pay proper homage!"

A regular ticket includes admission and your meal. A cash bar (wine and beer) will be available.

The VIP ticket includes admission for one, a Lowcountry Supper Buffet with reserved seating under the Leonard Pavilion, one glass of wine, and premier parking.
