2018 Fall Season

James Gregory
The Funniest Man in America
Saturday, November 17
7 pm
All Seats $23

Finally, everyone’s favorite comedian is back at The Ritz. James Gregory creates his signature evening of non-stop laughter with a wry sense of the absurd, a
heavy Southern accent and universal storytelling. The ridiculous, the common and sometimes even the simplest event all become hilarious in the hands of a master. By refusing the vulgar and profane, Gregory focuses on simpler times before the loss of common sense. Be prepared for some rib-tickling reflection on life from the front porch. James Gregory is a national treasure!

Black Jacket Symphony
A Night at the Opera
Featuring Marc Martel
Friday, January 4
Saturday, January 5
7 pm
All Seats 28

After some 13 different classic rock albums recreated in over 25 concerts at The Ritz over the last five years, this is our first Black Jacket Symphony encore – but for good reason. Black Jacket’s
‘A Night at the Opera’ concert features a phenomenal talent on the Freddie Mercury vocals, Mark Martel. Martel is on the verge of international acclaim due to the November 2018 release of the major motion picture BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, about Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury. Martel recorded the song voiceovers for actor Ramey Malek, who plays the Mercury character. Absolutely no voice in the world comes as close to Mercury’s iconic sound than that of Mark Martel, who recorded the soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios in London. Act quickly, tickets to this breathtaking concert experience will go fast.

MENOPAUSE ticket sales have been temporarily halted.

The producers of the national tour of MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL, GFOUR Productions LLC, has alerted Talladega’s Historic Ritz Theatre that the scheduled performances for Friday and Saturday, Jan 25 and 26 must be postponed. “Word of the postponement came through the producer’s spokesman and booking agency in New York City, Columbia Artists” according to Ritz executive director George Culver.

Culver added, “The company was very apologetic, but gave no reason other than the development of unfortunate circumstances. Yet the Columbia Artist spokesman was quite clear in reporting that the company’s performances at the Historic Ritz would definitely be rescheduled as soon as possible.”

“We regret the disappointment and inconvenience for our Ritz patrons and ticket holders for this show. Of course, we will be following up with phone calls and emails to ticket holders over the next several days. When the new show dates are confirmed, we will alert ticket holders quickly and genuinely hope that most will be able to modify their plans in order to attend the show on the new dates. Refunds will be provided for those who request them.

“Let me say that we do appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through the unfortunate delay in presenting this amazingly fun show which is a hit everywhere it plays.”
