welcome

Welcome to our website for Gumbo Bottoms: A Big Muddy Musical, written by Meredith Ludwig and Cathy Barton. Our 2014 performances will be Friday and Saturday, July 11 and 12 at 8 pm and Sunday July 13 at 2pm in Boonville, Missouri at Turner Hall, 518 Vine Street. We will also be performing for a private party aboard the Queen of the Mississippi, a paddle wheel cruise boat, in July. We were fortunate in the past to take the show on the road to Hermann, Jefferson City, Washington, and Columbia, Missouri, as well as the premiere stop in Boonville’s Thespian Hall in 2008. This web site will let you explore the history behind the musical, catch up on all the latest news and events with pictures and comments about the world premier of the show, and learn all about the cast and crew involved in this delightful production. We now have a short video from the premiere called "Little Bit of Gumbo," and a review from our performance in Washington.

If your theatre is interested in mounting your own production of Gumbo Bottoms, we would be delighted to send you a script and music. Contact Meredith Ludwig at info@gumbobottomsmusical.com.
