This weekend in Brunswick is the Elvis Tribute Artis competition. Most of if requires tickets, but on Sunday morning, many of the Elvis's sang at Ritz Theater. The music was fun, and the theater is definitely worth a visit. Great job on the renovation.

This vintage theater has been revitalized and repainted. Movies are shown on a scheduled basis and concerts are held. GIAHA has their office there and often there are art shows in the lobby. First Friday is always a thrill. I recommend a stop there when in downtown Brunswick.

So glad we decided to take in the show. We debated about spending $50, but I'm glad we did. While supporting the arts and historic preservation of a local landmark, we witnessed a performance that was chock full of music and superb acting. Broadway's got nothin' on these folks.

We made our second event visit to the Ritz this week to see the production of the radio play version of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". This show is now part of our family Christmas tradition. The children were delighted to watch the radio play take place while being thrilled by the story. The cast did an amazing job. I... More

many locals have graced these stages over the years in plays, fundraisers, along with many regional and national minor shows. Loved by the locals, a newly restored Ritz beacon light fixture will beckon anyone downtown to current offerings.

Went to Ritz Theatre for the Ga Elvis Festival in March 2014. Was a very nice place, comfortable seats. Bathrooms didn't work very well, but guess when you have lots of people going during intermission that's to be expected.
