Riverfront Board President Dan Kupsky to Exit Stage Left

Dan Kupsky

After a dozen years of volunteerism with Riverfront Playhouse, Board President Dan Kupsky is exiting the stage and handing his role to another longtime community servant.
Kupsky leaves his post after serving on the board for 12 years, most recently as president. He has also played numerous roles on stage and worked behind the scenes for dozens of productions over the years. The new president, Darryll Alvey, is a retired attorney and longtime Riverfront Playhouse actor and volunteer who has a long track record of community service. “His knowledge, expertise, and experience with theatre and the arts makes him a perfect fit,” Kupsky said.
Kupsky moved to the North State from southern New Jersey 44 years ago after completing his service in the Navy. He and his wife, Judy, are moving to Arizona to join their two children and their families, including a fifth grandchild due in May. “Our joyful anticipation is definitely dampened by saying farewell to familiar faces and places we’ve grown to love,” Kupsky said. “One of my most cherished community passions has been Riverfront Playhouse.”
Kupsky and Alvey have both been instrumental in establishing a new theatre in downtown Redding, which will replace the aging, small theatre in east Redding. “Our goal is finally within reach and I feel great confidence in handing over the reins to a new board president,” Kupsky said.
Members of the public can support the theatre project by making donations,
purchasing personalized bricks for the entryway, sponsoring seats or volunteering. For more information or to become a Riverfront member, visit  www.riverfrontplayhouse.net or find the theatre’s capital campaign page on Facebook.

    Hey Dan I see your face coming to mind in so many roles from the days of RPD and market fest and all the many ways that you have served our community.  So I will echo the sentiments of so many people in our community that you will  be greatly missed. I completely support your decision to spend time closer to family.  I know you will find fun and exciting involvements and ways to support your family and community in Arizona. Lucky them!  Congratulations on that new grand-baby!  All the best to you and yours.

  7. Redding will not be the same without both Dan and Judy. And Dan, when it comes to Riverfront, the guy has been a cheerleader for this organization like nothing I’ve ever seen.

    Dan and Judy, you will be missed!
