Tales from the Altamaha

Tales from the Altamaha is an award-winning folk-life play performed annually at the historic Blue Marquee Theater downtown Lyons. The cast and crew are a talented group of volunteers from all walks of life. A new collection of tales from the writings of Colonel T. Ross Sharpe is turned into a one-of-a-kind South Georgia must-see event. Get ready to sing along with the River Rat Review Band as they sing ol’ time gospels, classics, and some original tunes. Be prepared to laugh and cry as we relive tales of regional settlers’ lives, loves, losses, scandals, and just plain ol’ gossip.

We encourage one and all to participate in this community event. There is a place for everyone who wants to enjoy some good, clean family fun. No matter your passion, we will find a place for you. It takes many talents to create “Tales from the Altamaha”, including prop curator, costumes, marketing, acting, musicians, hospitality and more.

If you are interested in joining us as an actor, you MUST audition. Auditions are January 14 & 16, 2020. We ask you to read and agree to the “Tales Rules”, and fill out the Audition/Biographical Information Form and the Actor/Musician Release Form. Forms filled out after January 16, 2020, will be considered next year when you come to auditions. 

Returning adult cast members are not required to attend audition but must complete the forms no later than January 16, 2020, so that we will have the information we need in time for the casting meeting. Forms to complete: (1) Returning Adult Cast Member Biographical Information Form, (2) “Tales Rules” and the (3) Adult Actor/Musician Release Form.

If you are interested in volunteering that is not acting, please fill out this Tales Volunteer Form.

We look forward to another great show season!
