Truth be told, the building itself is old.The ceiling tiles are water stained. The carpet has long since been torn out. The entire place could use some paint. But who really cares once the lights go out? The lights went out and the play began (The Amorous Ambassador). The actors and actresses did a GREAT JOB! They were comedic and... More

We found the actors of summer stock very engaging, and enjoyed the performances. And the theater....yes, it's an antique that's being restored bit by bit, so don;t expect modern conveniences here, but the old charm and interesting architecture alone are worth seeing to those that can appreciate the old art.

The theater was old & no a/c and it was a very warm evening ! The play was not so good not worth the $15 . Theater badly needs renovation including a/c ! Either bring down price or better actors ! 😩😎

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
