Party Like It’s 1922 With Trustus Theatre

Be “among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars” at The Great Gatsby House Party

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Put on your flapper dress or your best three-piece suit, and make plans to attend the hottest party of the spring at The Great Gatsby House Party. Held at the Historic Seibels House, this signature Trustus Theatre event will kick off their Season 34 production of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, running on their Main Stage April 5 – April 27, 2019. Tickets are limited and may be purchased at or by calling the Trustus Theatre Box Office at 803-254-9732.

Trustus Theatre, on the behalf of Mr. Jay Gatsby, invites you for an unforgettable evening under the stars this spring at the Historic Seibels House. Your ticket to the event includes access to an open bar that features beer, wine, and Gatsby-themed specialty cocktails along with impeccable catering from Scott Hall Catering, the chef behind Columbia’s Bone-In BBQ restaurant in the Bull Street District. Outside, guests will dance the night away to live music provided by local gypsy swing band, Flat Out Strangers as well as Station Seven Band. Inside the house, guests will be entertained by DJ Preach Jacobs and with portrait paintings by Lucas Sams. There will be raffles, a silent auction, and a chance to have a private meeting with Mr. Jay Gatsby himself. Proceeds from the event will benefit Trustus Theatre.

“This party is going to transport you to a Gatsby-style party where the food is delicious, the drinks are plentiful, and the music doesn’t stop,” Trustus Theatre Artistic Director Chad Henderson said. “This is a great chance to enjoy a special night with a special date or friends. While 1920s wardrobe is encouraged, it is not required. Not to mention, with Station Seven Band, Flat Out Strangers, and DJ Preach Jacobs—you’ll be dancing all night. We always like to make ‘fun’ a big part of our fundraisers, and this event is no exception.”

The Great Gatsby House Party will be held at The Historic Seibels House at 1601 Richland Street in Columbia, South Carolina 29201. General admission tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at or by calling the Trustus Theatre Box Office at 803-254-9732.
