BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Dear Swampers, 

We are saddened to announce that at this time we have decided to put the next two weekends of Swamp Gravy: Behind Closed Doors on hold. I know that this news is not what anyone wants to hear, but we can’t in good consciousness put your health or the health of our audiences at risk. 

The show that you have put together is absolutely magical, and I am so sorry that our season is being cut short. We have also made the determination that we will not be able to participate in the Rivertown Days Festival this Sunday. 

Please check back here for more information in the coming weeks to see how this could potentially affect the schedule for the final weekend of Swamp Gravy as well as rehearsals and performances for Legally Blonde. 

If you have any loved ones planning to attend the show for the next two weekends, please let them know that we will be calling them in the next few hours to discuss rescheduling their tickets for October 2020.

At this time, we can’t answer any additional questions, as we must spend the next few hours reaching out to our patrons to ensure they get the news.

Thank you so much and love to all, 
Will

Season Announcements!

Hi everyone, 

Last week, I hinted at some new shows coming our way in 2020, and I finally have the rights secured to make the announcement. Before we announce these titles publicly, I wanted to share them with you.

For all you May-Haw lovers, things are about to get FRIGHTFUL! This year, we will be venturing into my favorite holiday with A Hilariously Haunted May-Haw Halloween! We will do four performances on October 29th at 7:30, October 30th at 7:30, October 31st at 2:00, and November 1st at 2:00. 

            We plan to make this a fun and festive experience for the whole family to enjoy—with fun costumes, spiderwebs, and pumpkins galore! We will aim to have a show that is about an hour and forty-five minutes long, and will only have 10 song slots. We have already pre-selected the ten songs, and will announce them before our auditions JUNE 23, 2020. 

Costumes will be assigned, and we will help where we can, but as always May-Haw costumes are the actor’s responsibility. For this year’s May-Haw, there will be no speaking lines for actors under the age of 16. Young cast members are still welcome to be in costume as part of the ensemble with their parents.

            And Christmas this year will look a little different! Cotton Hall will be visited by three ghosts this Christmas season, as A Southern Christmas Carol returns to the stage. In this production, Ebenezer Scrooge’s classic tale is transported to rural Southwest Georgia with all the flavor and twang that goes along with it. Beloved in its initial run in Colquitt, this production of A Southern Christmas Carol will feature an all-new cast and design that is sure to leave an indelible impression on your heart—and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy throughout the holidays. 

            We will likely be hiring a small number of professional actors to take the stage alongside our local talent. The cast size of this production is still up in the air as we consider the artistic vision and budgetary constraints, so auditions for this performance will be a little unusual. We will begin with a preliminary audition in the near future to determine interest from the cast, and to see how folks can best be utilized. These auditions will not result in a cast list, as there will then be a search for our professional actors. 

            Many of you will remember the warmth of the 2003, 2004, and 2005 productions of A Southern Christmas Carol, but for those of you who didn’t have the pleasure of seeing the premiere production, I cannot wait for you to experience this version of Scrooge’s story. It is a smart, lovely, and heartwarming adaptation that is truly one of my favorites.  

You will begin to see announcements for these shows popping up in your Facebook feeds, and we hope you will help us in spreading the excitement. There is still more news to come, but for now, we hope you are as excited as we are for all that this new year will hold. 

Right inside the front door of Cotton Hall a brick reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Our vision for 2020 is clear, and you guys will be a huge part in making that vision a reality. 

With thanks and gratitude, 
Will
