Ritz to present free summer finale

The Ritz Theatre is presenting a mini musical festival Aug. 18-21 on the lawn at East Tower, at Market and Jefferson streets in downtown Tiffin.

Michael Strong, executive director for The Ritz, has scheduled a variety of artists to give a free one-hour performance at 11 a.m. each day. A tent is to be set up, and families are asked to bring their own seating.

“It’s going to be free of charge and fun for families and kids,” he said.

The Village Puppeteers of Saginaw, Michigan, are to appear Aug. 18. “Magic by Eli” is the performance for Aug. 19. Sarah Goslee Reed is to play children’s music Aug. 20 and Martin Koop of Tiffin is to give the Aug. 21 program.

“We figure it’s a nice way to end the summer with a little free family fun,” Strong said. “We’ll have a good time.”
