William Paterson alumnus Michael Turco, '05 is described by the Philadelphia Daily News as "a crowd-pleaser who merits a return to town...". Michael Turco has answered that call by returning to the Shea Center stage for a second season. Once again, Turco will embark the audience on a magical adventure through a world of spectacular illusions, mystery, and impossibility.
Previously, Turco graciously donated his time to performance at the Wayne VOAD Volunteer Celebration at Willowbrook Mall last December. He continues his support of our efforts once again.
Please attend the performance and tell your friends to attend. This will help to support Wayne VOAD and our sponsors as well.
