Rialto's Incredible Talent Zone!

The RITZ Gala Fundraiser 2024

  • Please mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27, 2024, because The RITZ is back! For over 15 years, The RITZ (formally known as "Puttin' on the Ritz") has dazzled community audiences through wonderful displays of RUSD student talent. The RITZ (Rialto's Incredible Talent Zone) makes its exciting return to the majestic Carter High School Theatre Hall!

    The District's Beliefs state that everyone has unique talents, music is the universal language, and everyone can contribute to the good of the community. The RITZ embodies each one of those statements, highlighting the unique talents of our wonderful students, showcasing music, and providing a space where, through student support and generous donations, the community is strengthened and inspired.

    Proceeds from the RITZ will support students and families through the Sharing Our Love Foundation.
