Mission Statement: The Ritz Theatre Company offers challenging and diverse professional productions and quality on-stage training which nurtures aspiring actors at every level. Housed in an historic theatre building, the Ritz is a creative partnership of theatrical artists and audiences; outreach programs use the power of live theatre to educate and inform residents of the Delaware Valley.
The Ritz is a professional non-equity training theatre which operates on a year-round basis as an arts center/artists' colony and distinguishes itself with the uniqueness and high quality of its theatrical enterprise in a Southern New Jersey locale that might not otherwise have access to professional theatre. Through a blend of main stage productions and an array of outreach/educational programs, The Ritz provides quality theatre and related activates that are accessible both geographically and financially to a diverse population base.
The Ritz presently serves more than 73,300 people annually
in a multi-county area, almost triple the number reached at its inception in
1986. One of the priorities is to support this growth and increased demand
for programs with sound management practices and prudent fiscal controls.
