Cast Info


Hi guys,
Thank you all so much for auditioning for Camp Murder. I am not exaggerating in the least when I say that we thought everyone had one of their best auditions to date. This was excruciatingly hard. (We need more Murder Mystery parts for our wonderful ladies!)

Thank you all so much for your time and patience. We will be announcing our preliminary auditions soon for A Southern Christmas Carol and hope to see you there!

Hi everyone, 

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this current situation. As I’m sure you have been able to guess, we will not be able to perform Legally Blonde or Frozen, Jr. as planned.

We intentionally waited as long as we could to see if we might be able to reschedule for later this summer, but it’s clear now that we won’t be able to proceed as normal just yet.

We are currently negotiating with MTI to see when we may be able to reschedule the performance—with the likely possibility being 2021. We will likely re-audition for Legally Blonde, with the acknowledgement that most people will stay in the same role unless circumstances change or you are needed elsewhere more. (I know that’s not the MOST reassuring news to many of you, but it’s honest.) We will lose some cast members to college and scheduling commitments, so things may need to change, and I want to be upfront about that. 

We have a couple of versions of what our calendar might look like for July, and August, but we are still playing a waiting game to see what will be the safest time and place to put on a show!

I will continue to post info here about the Summer Show, Murder Mystery, and Southern Christmas Carol here. So keep checking back.

Hope to see you all soon,



New Festival Location will be the
Bill Reynolds Sports Park at 1100 Cox Ave., Bainbridge GA 39817.

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,
