Another installment of the Ritz Theatre’s Open Mic Monday coming up next week

The second installment of the fourth season of the Ritz Theatre’s Open Mic Monday will be held next week in downtown Toccoa.

The competition will begin at 7 p.m., Monday, October 19, and continue on the third Monday of each month through December. The series will culminate with a Winner’s Showcase in January.

Ritz Theatre General Manager Tami Mayhugh tells WNEG News each month features a different category for the competitors.

She says October’s category will be Singer/Songwriter.

Anyone interested in being a contestant can sign-up for free online by emailing Mayhugh at or at the door the night of the show on a first-come, first-up basis, until 6:30 p.m.

The monthly competitions are limited to just 10 contestants each.

A three-judge panel will decide a winner.

Like prior seasons, Open Mic Monday is a free event for both participants and the public.

Mayhugh says come hear some great talent and cheer on your favorite performers.
