Charleston Music Hall
A Charleston tradition for over 20 years, the Charleston Christmas Special is presented at the Charleston Music Hall by Brad and Jennifer Moranz, and is popular with locals and visitors alike. We asked Brad Moranz why this is the best show in town for everyone and he said, “The truth is – it really is the BEST, but that is because of the talent within the show. From the singers, to the band, to the dancers – the combination of all these folks is amazing! We have singers who appeared in leading roles on Broadway, the very best musicians in Charleston, and seven of the best dancers in town – all performing the most fun and beloved Christmas songs of all time.” We have to agree – this is one you really must see!
