I would love to bring Swamp Gravy to my hometown. Do you tour?

We can tour anywhere. We’ve toured many places in the U.S. as well as South America. We can tour the current production, which will require 35-40 cast member plus crew, or we have a special production just for touring, which strives to keep the flavor of Swamp Gravy while utilizing 15-20 performers. If you are interested in more information such as prices, please contact Will Murdock at or Kate Willis Cook at

Do you sell DVDs of Swamp Gravy productions?

Historically, we have not created nor sold DVDs of our productions, believing them to be best enjoyed in Cotton Hall Theater. If that changes in the future, the news will appear here on the website – stay tuned!

Do you sell CDs of Swamp Gravy music?

We currently have available selections of Swamp Gravy favorites from 1992-2003, and we hope to have newer songs on the way soon! You can purchase CDs at our souvenir shop in Cotton Hall.

Are you on Facebook?

You bet we are! Please follow us here for exclusive updates, photos, videos, and other fun tidbits.

Are you on YouTube?

We’re all over YouTube as well. You can subscribe to our YouTube channel here. We post interviews from cast members, as well as scenes from some of our favorite shows from the past.

I want to talk to a real person! Why is no one answering the phone?

Our work often takes us around town, around the state, or even just to parts of the building where the phone doesn’t reach (Cotton Hall is awfully big). Please leave us a message – we will get back to you as soon as we possibly can!

When is the best time to call and talk to someone?

We make a concentrated effort to accept and return calls on Thursdays between 10 am and 4 PM EST. If you happen to miss us during this time, please keep trying.

If I do get through, whom should I speak to?

TICKET Questions

I already purchased tickets, but found out I can’t come that weekend after all. What can I do?

In accordance with our ticket policy, we do not offer refunds. However, if there is another weekend that would work better for you, please call Kate at 229-758-5450 to see if we can set up an exchange.

I have a group of 15 people. Do I qualify for a group rate?

Group rates  begin at groups of 20 people. Youth productions do not have group rates at this time. To book a group of 20 or more at the group rate, please call Kate at 229-758-5450. All other tickets may be purchased online.

I’ve purchased group tickets, but several people in my group can’t come after all. What can I do?

In accordance with our ticket policy, we do not offer refunds. However, if you bring the tickets to the box office, we can attempt to resell them for you. If we are successful, we will gladly credit the price of those tickets back to you. Please note that resells of tickets won’t occur until all other regular seats have been sold.

I’m trying to get a group together, but I don’t know for sure how many people I will have. What should I do?

Call Kate at 229-758-5450 to set up a group reservation. She will go ahead and reserve the number of seats you think you’ll need for the performance you wish to attend, and you will have until 45 days before the performance to add seats, remove seats, make your final payment, or cancel altogether. Please reserve early to be sure you can get the best possible seats for your party. The 2pm Saturday matinees fill up especially quickly.

In the event your group falls below the 20 people required for the group rate, you will be charged the regular rate for the remaining tickets purchased.

I don’t like having to go through Etix. It was so much better before!

When we had to make staffing cutbacks, online ticketing seemed the best way to go to ensure that our patrons could purchase tickets on their schedule, without overtaxing our greatly-reduced workforce. We did a lot of research to find a company with low fees, who could provide both online ticketing as well as the support of a call center for those patrons who prefer to speak with a person rather than go online. Etix was a good fit for our needs, and we’re always looking to make ticket-purchasing a more pleasant experience.
