According to Glenn Hanson, musical director of the production, Ronnie is a tremendously talented young man, who handles effectively both the acting and singing requirements of the role. Betty Peterson Baker, well-known Ogden soprano, will play Amahl's mother. Becky Burnette is understudy to Mrs. Baker. The Three Kings are being enacted by Weber College students. Val Stewart plays the comedy role of King Casper, who is slightly deaf. King Melchoir will be played by Wesley Boman, and King Balthasar will be played by Clair West. Dance Sequence The dance sequence will be handled by Fran Frost and Bob Miya. Weber College's choir makes up the chorus of peasants and townspeople from Amahl's village.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
