This is probably one of my favorite theaters in the state purely for the masks. I don’t believe they are the Masks of Comedy and Drama because they both look horrified. If they do represent Comedy and Drama, this is the first time I’ve never been able to tell the difference which is which. If this is supposed to represent something else, please let me know.
Locals state the building was constructed in 1923. I did find news articles about the theater as early as 1925. It is a contributing property to the Waycross Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.

I am familiar with the comedy-tragedy masks, but they both look like tragedy to me.
