see a show presented by the Theatre of Gadsden

Lights. Curtain. Action. Set your imagination free and be inspired by local talent galore when you see a show presented by the Theatre of Gadsden at the historic Ritz Theatre this summer and fall!

The summer show

As The Sound of Music recently wrapped up, the theater is now preparing for what’s next. We’ll give you a hint. It’s a timeless American classic that mainly takes place on the mighty Mississippi. It’s a tale of friendship, sacrifice and freedom.

It’s none other than Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn based on Mark Twain’s famous novel. Follow along with the funny, gripping and moving adventures of the willful, but lovable, Huck Finn as he helps his friend Jim find freedom.

Make your plans now and buy your tickets early to see Big River on the big stage at the Ritz Theatre July 15th-24th!

Coming this fall

If summer vacation plans stop you from seeing the summer show, don’t sweat it. You can still see a show presented by the Theatre of Gadsden this fall. In fact, you can take your pick!

Guests will be entertained and delighted to see Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winning Cat on a Hot Tin Roof set for the stage September 16th-25th.

The 2022 Season at the Ritz Theatre will call it a wrap after the presentation of White Plains, Blue Mountain October 28th-November 6th.
