Newberry Community Players was founded in 1972 to give community members an opportunity to perform in and enjoy live theatre in Newberry, SC. As most of you know we are a volunteer based non-profit group dedicated to bringing fun and exciting plays not only to our community but also to our youth through our Teen and Youth group programs. 

In 1974, the Newberry Community Players bought The Ritz Theatre. Keeping the building safe, clean, and ready for stage productions consumes most of the resources of this all-volunteer, nonprofit group.

This current fund-raising campaign is focused on raising the large additional funds needed to restore the Ritz Theater to its former Art Deco appearance, fund additional programs (sewing classes, script writing workshops, costume workshops,etc), and performing building maintence. 

This year, The Ritz celebrates its 80th Anniversery! We already started facelifting our lobby and are in the process of starting extensive repairs on the building.

Moving forward, our vision is to renovate The Ritz to become a multi-purpose venue providing entertainment to the comunity and a hub for community events.

I didn't grow up in Newberry, but have considered it my home for many years, and I love that the people here respect older buildings & strive to renovate rather than destroy.

I hope lots of people will join in this effort to save a historic and treasured art deco landmark in Newberry for future generations to have and enjoy.
