Haddon Township, NJ
Though it might not be able to rival nearby cities in size, Haddon Township has a cultural scene that can stand up favorably to cities like Philadelphia and offers local apartment residents a historic venue in which to enjoy the arts.
The city's famous Ritz Theatre has a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. The building opened in 1927 as a vaudeville theater and later played host to fine-art film showings. But as the advent of home movies began to phase out the movie theater's popularity, the Ritz began putting on live productions. Those shows continue today, with the Ritz becoming renowned as a top venue for the performing arts. Since 1986, the Ritz Theatre Company - once known as "Puttin' on the Ritz" - has been entertaining Haddon Township apartment residents with six mainstage productions and 11 children's productions each season, according to theater officials.
The theater also plays host to a number of summer camps, dramatic workshops and outreach programs that involve apartment residents from around the Haddon Township community. Additionally, the theater's in-house art gallery, called The Gallery at the Ritz keeps apartment residents entertained with monthly exhibits featuring professional works of art from around the country.
Part of the Ritz's allure comes from its charming Greek architecture, much of which has been preserved over the years. The auditorium's 25-foot high neo-classical canvas mural is part of the reason that Haddon Township apartment residents take such pride in the venue.
