Beneath the Sweetgrass Moon is based on authentic, traditional South Carolina African-American folktales, songs, games and ghost stories. Like a Lowcountry Hansel and Gretel, youngsters Mary and Jack set out on an adventure where they encounter whimsical folk characters such as Ring-tale-coon, Foxxy Fox and Persimmon Possum. Along the way Mary and Jack learn how Rambling Rabbit got his short tail, discover a forest of riddle trees and narrowly escape the clutches of the Boo Hag, a notorious witch-like enchantress from the swamps of the Carolina Lowcountry.
Beneath the Sweetgrass Moon has a "sensory-friendly" performance at 5:00pm on Nov. 13.
