Swamp Gravy

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.
