The Winter's Tale, written in 1610-11, is among Shakespeare's last plays. It is staged as it was written, and its combination of tragedy, comedy and unearthly poetry has proved very effective in the theatre. Leontes, King of Sicilia, unreasonably suspects his wife, Her-mione, of infidelity with Polixenes, Leontes' boyhood friend. Leontes' passion is unreasonable and obsessive, and he seeks to poison his friend. Polixenes escapes, and the King's jealousy is concentrated on Heimione, whom he throws into prison. A child now born to Her-mione is disowned by the King, who commands that it be abandoned, but the Delphic Oracle proclaims Hermione's innocence. Leontes is not convinced until the death of his heir and the reported death of his wife. The abandoned child, Perdita, survives and is, years later, courted by Prince Florizel of Bohemia; the King of Bohemia opposes the supposedly unequal match. The lovers flee to Sicilia, and a happy ' solution occurs. : Director John M. Elzey has selected an outstanding cast j composed mainly of Weber State students and alumni with a sprinkle of community actors for seasoning.Those who are taking advantage of the opportunity to recreate Mr. Shakespeare's people are: Leontes, Iraj Sami; Hermione, Joan Silver; Polixenes, Ken Post; Paulina, Judy Butler; Perdita, Mar-lynn Neuberger; Autolycus, Steve Parker; Florizel, Gale Harms.

|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.|
