Board of Directors
It is an honor to serve as your elected President. I have been a performer and creator in the arts for many years; from dance, acting, to technical theatre. Now I strive to give back and serve. It is my goal to expand the accessibility and experience of our theatre for the enjoyment of our growing community. Live theatre and performance art has a magical way of bringing people together. 'By the Community, For the Community' - we are a community theatre in the truest of forms. The Richland Players have exemplified this and it is why I call this theatre my home. Connect with us as we take the theatre into the next 75 years.
Kate D. Clark-Isaacson
I am a true drama geek and have been involved with drama all though school. I have acted, been an assistant director, created décor for theater lobby; wrote and performed my own monologue. I want to give back to the community with my skills (28+ years clerical background) and creative talent.
Mark became involved in theatre late in life, starting with a small role in 2016’s Cyrano de Bergerac. He became hooked, and found a passion for preserving the Richland Players’ rich history. He has continued to audition for plays, winning small roles here and there. He is attempting to compile a master list of every actor who has performed in every play (a perhaps impossible task) and posts the popular “Throwback Thursdays” on Facebook, featuring information and photos from our past shows.
J. Spyder Isaacson
J. Spyder Isaacson is a Seattle native with 40 years in theatre, doing almost every job at every level. An experienced improviser, he is often invited to speak at science fiction/fantasy conventions. He is also the voice of the title character in the audio drama series “The Deadeye Kid” with 19 Nocturne Boulevard. He earns a living with his Master of Education degree as a Training Specialist for Washington River Protection Solutions and lives in Richland with his wife, fellow board member Kate Clark-Isaacson, and their furry family member, Christopher Francis.
Randy is excited to be on the Board of Directors. Having just celebrated the 75th Diamond Jubilee we look forward to create new history. He has been involved in community theaters all over the country as an actor, director, board president, technical support and public relations. Richland is Randy's final home so the Players provide an excellent opportunity for civic involvement. Theatre is always inspiring, challenging and surprising and provides the joys of life. Randy’s degrees include a BFA in Theatrical Performance, an MFA in Theatrical Direction and a BS in Journalism. He also was as an adjunct professor in Speech, Theatre and Creative Dramatics; plus was an Artist-in-Residence throughout the Rocky Mountain region teaching puppetry, video production and historical dramatization. Randy toured with several Chautauqua troupes performing one-man shows of Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain and James Madison.
William is proud to be a member of this historic theatre’s team and lives for the unique art that we create & facilitate together. He has been active since 2013 and shares a passion for live theater with his wife and two children.
