The Ritz Theater & Performing Arts Center is a building rich in Scranton history. One of the oldest theaters in NEPA, we are now home to an educational arts program called the Creative and Performing Arts Center. The Ritz Theater has our very own troupe of actors called the Ritz Mainstage Players. The Ritz Mainstage Players is responsible for our theater for young audience productions, Fairytale Brunches, and more mature productions, such as past titles like Into the Woods, Matilda, Urinetown, and Little Women.

The Ritz Theater & Performing Arts Center also hosts various events and rentals throughout the year. Previously we have hosted a variety acts, business luncheons, and formal galas. This past year we hosted groups like the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, the Lackawanna Historical Society, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We host events both ticketed that are open to the public, as well as invite-only.
