Sally Whittaker and Tiffany Thompson performing the "Carmen Miranda Hat Scene" from the play Swamp Gravy: The Gospel Truth , 1995.
Swamp Gravy is a musical play that celebrates
rural southwestern Georgia folk life. Original songs and
choreography are combined with traditional music and dance in a
grand scale stage production with a cast and crew of 100.
Professionally written, directed, and designed, the play draws on
folklore, tall tales, and family stories for its content. It is
performed in Cotton Hall, a 60-year-old warehouse in Colquitt,
Georgia, and has also played in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy
Center and throughout the South.
