Uptown! plans spectacular New Year’s celebration
Co-chairs, and husband and wife team, Sandy Riper, of Sunset Hills Jewelers, and lawyer and board member, Joe Riper, have been planning the 2018 celebration to support Uptown! since the 2017 version ended. Guests will enjoy dinner from John Serock Catering, drinks, dancing on the stage to the band New Street Heat, entertainment, a raffle and a Broadway in the Borough performance by RTC, the Resident Theatre Company. The 327-seat non-profit theater opened its doors to coincide with the gala on New Year’s Eve 2016-17. This is the third year the event has been held at the theater and a tradition since plans for showplace commenced about a decade ago.
For the first year at the theater it was a black tie event and this year patrons of the arts will wear cocktail attire. Sandy and Joe Riper have been with the theater since the planning stages. The celebration helps maintain programs, preserve the former National Guard Armory, an historic building, keep ticket prices in check and helps to pay staff. Angela Scully, executive director, said the annual event is the roots of support and helped launch the theater. The theater is home to seven resident companies, works with youth and regularly sells out Jazz and Better than Bacon Improv comedy shows.
Ticket sales begin for Uptown! members on August 31.

The new owner has chosen to recreate the site from its archived pages and added a few YouTube videos of past iCannabis Radio podcasts.
