Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Colquitt/Miller Arts Council! Your support of CMAC is directly responsible for our success. In the beginning, who would have thought that over the next 20 years some half million visitors would travel to Colquitt to see Swamp Gravy and our other Cotton Hall productions! To become a member, please contact us at 1-229-758-5450.
Any organization’s strength is in its members and volunteers. Throughout the year, during show times, when the town square is filled with people who are doing business with our shops, restaurants, and gas stations, please remember that YOU, as a member, helped make that happen! Over 85% of our current budget must be met by earned income and your membership dues are a part of that earned income portion of our budget. Though we constantly focus on cutting expenses, we depend heavily on your contributions to meet our financial goals. Your dues not only help us meet our financial obligations, but they also make it possible for us to be the only non-profit arts organization or regional theater in Georgia that operates at the level we do.
Membership Dues support the following CMAC programs:
Swamp Gravy, is Georgia’s Official Folk-Life Play. The show features local stories, volunteer actors, and home-grown music. Swamp Gravy is performed in Cotton Hall Theater every October and March. The cast also tours and performs the show nationally.
May-Haw is Colquitt’s own musical variety show offering its audience side-splitting fun and toe-tapping tunes. It features the hilarious skits and local “Nashville” singers.
New Life Learning Center houses our “Little Einstein’s School of Discovery” pre-school, “Swamp Stompers” after school and summer camp as well as our very own pottery painting studio. All of our programs offer a challenging academic curriculum, including art enrichment, social skills, and creative thinking. Our center is available to rent for birthday parties and special events.
Market on the Square offers a unique shopping experience featuring art, gifts, gourmet foods, adult and children’s specialty clothing, and many other fine products.
Youth Theater strives to teach its actors confidence, technique, and stage presence. Peter Pan, Bridge to Terabithia, Willie Wonka, Alice in Wonderland, Christmastime at the Circus Marvello, James and the Giant Peach, and Wizard of Oz, Seussical the Musical, Jr. have all been family-favorite productions.
