Using love, lover's quarrels, and love potions, Shakespeare weaves comedy into every scene. One difficult task in producing this play found by Dr. Elzey is, "In this day of sophistication it's hard to get people to believe in fairies. We hope that the people who come will bring some naivety, on the other hand, also the sophistication to enjoy Shakespeare's lyrical English." Lynn Alvord has composed original music for this production which will be played on a clavinet, an electric clavichord, by Marilyn Hodges. Both are Weber State students . J. D. Stokes, a theatre arts major, has done the choreography. A prologue in dance movement "showing the battle that took place in mythology between Theseus and Hippolyta" has been added, Dr. Elzey explains; "the dancing all through- the show is quite athletic." Costumes have been designed Procedures for advanced registration areas follows : Pick up packets and class schedules at the registration windows in the Administration Building. Course Cards can be picked up for freedom in movement, based on styles of about 1805-1812. Stage design includes platforms and stair units used throughout the play which will represent various scenes. "We have a lot of flexibility; it requires a lot of use of imagination," comments Elzey.

|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.|
