The Ritz Theatre|
Support Our Efforts
Did you know that the price of your ticket only covers 60% of the expenses to operate The Ritz? As a community owned and supported non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization, The Ritz Theatre depends on private contributions to cover the remaining expenses for operations and capital improvements.|
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization our mission is to entertain and enrich people by providing an historic center for creative expression, education, social interaction, and community development.
We hope to communicate and promote an appreciation of the arts and a greater understanding of our heritage and culture through a diversity of programs designed to benefit the people of Northwest Ohio.
You can help The Ritz continue to fulfill this valuable mission by donating today.
