University Theatre presents My Wonderful Day by Alan Ayckbourn Directed by WP professor Jerry Beal
Nine-year-old Winnie has to write an essay describing everything that happened to her. As she sits in her house and observes the goings on around her, the essay becomes considerably more than anything she had expected. The mastery of Alan Ayckbourn’s craft is shown in another extraordinary blend of comedy and pathos that dissects contemporary English life.

Award-winning vocalist Alexis Cole is at the heart of today’s New York jazz vocal and cabaret scene. After graduating from William Paterson in the mid-90s, she became a member and featured vocal soloist with the remarkable jazz big band ensemble at West Point Academy. Today, she has moved on to establish a major reputation as a virtuoso vocalist, in command of a wide array of repertoire and always in touch with the jazz traditions. Today’s backing trio also consists of fellow William Paterson alumni, including two recent arranging master’s degree recipients, pianist/musical director Scott Arcangel, and drummer Joe Spinelli.
