Newberry Community Players Fund
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.
