For tickets, please click here

The Savannah Tour of Homes & Gardens offers a rare opportunity to enter some of Savannah’s finest private homes and admire the special furnishings that have been treasured by families for generations but seldom seen by visitors. In addition to home and garden walking tours, you can also enjoy some exclusive special events as well as some of the best food and hospitality the South has to offer.

Savannah has the largest urban landmark historic district in the United States. In this 2.5 square mile area, there is an astonishingly preserved genteel city encompassing the beauty, architecture and history of the old South. Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Edward Oglethorpe whose colonial plan was based on a grid of residences and broad thoroughfares with spacious public squares at regular intervals. This design has blossomed into a gracious city whose downtown has been enhanced by more than fifty years of preservation activity. Twenty-two oak-canopied squares surrounded by lovely homes and churches give Savannah a character of its own.

Events fill quickly and may have limited seatings, so please reserve your tickets early. Tickets information here.

Seussical Jr. musical coming to St. Andrew’s School, Feb. 20-22

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Seussical the musical St. Andrew's School Savannah For her MFA thesis on performing arts, Mary Elizabeth Godfrey wanted to get some real life experience. Godfrey reached out to St. Andrew’s School on Wilmington Island, inquiring on ways to get involved with young people on stage.

She may have gotten more than she bargained for when she then took on being the director of the annual Middle School musical! Starting February 20, the curtain goes up on Seussical Jr., a musical extravaganza that brings all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters together on stage at one time.

“This age group is straddling childhood and adulthood and needs a lot of support,” said Godfrey. “I love helping these young people find their creative side and let it shine on stage.”

Seussical St. Andrew's Savannah

Godfrey gives stage direction to Joseph Simons ‘21

When the production is over, Godfrey will begin writing her thesis, with a focus on the importance of arts education for middle school students. She has especially enjoyed watching each student take a Dr. Seuss character and bring it to life. Godfrey believes the experience on stage teaches young people to be creative and to search for more than one right answer to a situation. This is what 21st century teaching and learning looks like.

Don’t miss seeing these 21 talented students on stage.
