ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One southwest Georgia group is taking the public back to big hair and crazy colors.  The Rylander Theater is hosting an "I love the 80s" gala this weekend to raise money for the Friends of the Rylander Foundation.

Organizers said the longest running tribute band in the county is set to play.  They said it's a fun way to preserve the historic theater and invest in future productions.

"We really are encouraging people to come dressed in 80s attire," said Heather Stanley, Managing Director.  "You don't have to, of course, but if you still have the crimp iron and the leg warmers and the popped collar polos and acid washed jeans and all that fun stuff."

Stanley said a raffle will be held before and after the show with gifts from local shops.

The doors open at 7:30 Saturday night.  Tickets are expected to go fast but are on sale now.  You can get a seat for 25 bucks.
