Swamp Gravy gears up for summer show

May 20, 2007

Colquitt - - In just two weeks, a Miller County tradition will continue with good music and some stellar acting.

Performers in the Swamp Gravy Songbook production are getting ready for their summer show. It's called "Comin Down Like Rain".

The musical features traditional spirituals and original music by South Georgia song writers. The play is about the drought that happened a hundred years ago and how families got through it.

"It's a struggle between two families, one black one white really trying to make life work on this land that's been really hard. Mother nature is giving them a hard time. It's also got a lot of music, it's a musical and its almost a modern day story of Moses and her people," says Playwright Jules Corriere.

The seven member cast consists of teens and adults. Organizers promise it will be good clean fun for all families.

The first show begins June 4th. For more information on Swamp Gravy, click here.
