WP Presents!

Our mission is to provide a spectrum of engaging and significant live performances, accessible to students and all members of our community, throughout the year. Bringing talent to the foreground of your experience is our first goal. Fostering diversity and depth of experience follows. The performing arts represent not only what happens on a stage or in a concert hall, but what happens for you in the performing moment and after.

University Performing Arts (UPA) and University Galleries are two arms in the administration of programs in creative and performing arts at William Paterson. UPA is responsible for programming and logistical support for the Jazz Room Series, Distinguished Lecturer Series. WP Presents! and all public productions in the Shea Center for Performing Arts and the Hunziker Black Box Theatre.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the many events we present.

Grant Logos

WP Presents! and The Jazz Room Series events are made possible in part by a grant from the NJ Council on the Arts/Dept. of State,
a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
