Ritz Radio Theatre Returns for the Holidays

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities is bringing back the popular Ritz Radio Theatre productions of It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol for the holiday season. Perfect for all ages, the performances will be presented the second and third weekends in December to bring the holiday spirit to the Golden Isles.
 
The Ritz Radio Theatre productions are just like they would have been done in the 1940s as live radio broadcasts—in front of a live audience, with period costumes, sound effects and even commercials. “It's a fun and interactive performance,” says Heather Heath, Executive Director, Golden Isles Arts and Humanities. "The audience is part of the broadcast as their reactions and applause are integral to the show. And getting to see the actors 'become' their characters and watch how the sounds are created is very entertaining." Heath directs both productions as Miss Georgia Power, her 1940s alter ego. “All the actors have their own actor character as well as the characters they play in the shows.  We have a great time bringing these classic stories to life and taking our audiences with us,” she says.
 
It’s a Wonderful Life is the beloved tale of a guardian angel named Clarence who helps a despairing businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed. Local radio personality Scott Ryfun heads the cast as George Bailey. The play will be presented Friday, Dec. 12, and Saturday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Dec. 14 at 3 p.m. The Charles Dickens’ immortal classic, A Christmas Carol, is the story of miserly old Scrooge and his magical night with the spirits of past, present and future that guide him in discovering the true meaning of Christmas. Former Mayor Bryan Thompson reprises his leading role of Ebenezer Scrooge. The play will be staged Friday, Dec. 19, and Saturday, Dec. 20, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 21 at 3 p.m.

The Ritz Radio Theatre productions are sponsored in part by Ned Cash Jewelers and local radio station 1440 WGIG and presented by Golden Isles Arts & Humanities. Advance tickets for Golden Isles Arts & Humanities members are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors (age 65 and up). Advance tickets for nonmembers are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors. Day of show tickets for members are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors while the cost for nonmembers is $25 for adults and $20 for seniors. The cost for students (with ID) is always $5 each. To purchase advance tickets, visit www.goldenislesarts.org, or the Ritz Theatre box office, 1530 Newcastle St., Wednesdays-Fridays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. or on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. For more information, call (912) 262-6934.
