The Ritz Theatre Company recently announced that Producing Artistic Director, Ted Wioncek III and his critically acclaimed theatre company, The Collaborative Act Studio (TCAS), will join forces with The Ritz Theatre in Haddon Township, NJ.  Ted will become the Associate Producing Artistic Director of The Ritz Theatre and TCAS will play a vital role in its effort to provide daring and edgy works in addition to The Ritz Theatre’s theatrical landscape. 

“We are very proud to be able to give The Collaborative Act Studio a new home and I am sure our association with TCAS will enrich our organization and give us new and exciting offerings to pass on to our patrons and audiences. We are all looking forward to the synergy this partnership will create." said Bruce A. Curless, Producing Artistic Director of The Ritz Theatre.

TCAS was recently honored with a New Jersey Association of Community Theatre (NJACT) Perry Award.  TCAS was nominated for a total of eight Perry Awards.
