RITC Mission & Values
Redwood Ice Theatre Company (RITC) is a 501c3 non-profit professional figure skating organization working to provide quality entertainment for the community, inspire up and coming professional skaters and celebrate the art of figure skating. We achieve our mission by making professional ice skating shows more available to the community, supporting youth outreach programs for young skaters and creating exceptional experiences for our community.
Develop, produce and present spectacular professional performances at the historic Snoopy's Home Ice rink, built by the famous cartoonist, Charles M. Schulz (creator of the Peanuts comic strips). Connect with professional figure skaters from all over the world and provide performance opportunities for professional non-competitive figure skaters. Promote new interest in figure skating and inspire the next generation of skater and spectators in a life-long love of skating. Support and empower our skating community to continue on their personal and artistic growth.
