Boston Tea Party re-enactment

If you're a history buff, this Sunday you may want to skip the football Patriots (or at least fire up the DVR) for some old-fashioned, colonial Patriots. The Old South Meetinghouse is hosting its annual reenactment of the Boston Tea Party on December 14 at 5:30 PM. Audience members can take on the role of a Patriot or Loyalist and participate in a spirited, interactive town meeting debating the tea tax. Old Souths Tea Party Players will portray the big "stars" such as Sam Adams and Paul Revere. Then, the audience will witness the destruction of the tea in a theatrical storytelling piece that will take them back 235 years to the night of December 16, 1773. And there's a pretty creative free gift for those who buy six tickets or more: a box of Salada tea. Click here for tickets.
