The Show Must Go On! - Despite State Budget Cuts

Friday, April 6, 2007, Herald News - The Pioneer Players of William Paterson University will present the musical, Seussical beginning April 12, despite recent state budget cuts which meant reductions in theatre staff and programming.

"It took away the most important thing in college for all of us," said communications major, Andrea Corbo. "We decided as students to take everything in our hands."

When an 800 signature petition and a round of meetings with administration proved unsuccessful, the Pioneer Players presented the Student Government Association with a business plan requesting a $30,000. The funds were approved making it "the biggest payout in SGA history."
