The shows are great but the building is old and needs remodeling. It has that old musty smell and you can see where there were water leaks. The seats also need to be refurbished if not replaced. Plus some air conditioning would help.

This is an old theater. Seat cushions are available and recommended. Plays are pretty good with local people.

I have attended many plays and events at the Ritz Company Playhouse, from Moonlight On the Poconos Big Band Fundraisers for Charity, to wonderful community theater plays and Christmas events. The building is an architectural gem and the performances have always been worth the price of admission and so reasonably priced that often I bring a guest or few with... More

Decent amateur productions. The theater is an old (1940s?) movie theater. There is not a sound system - this is back to the day when actors learned to project. The productions are family musicals and British farces; not professional but enjoyable evenings.
