Threepenny Opera To Feature Satire By Kate Coming to the Weber State Little Theatre beginning Monday, Nov. 18, will be one of New York's most successful musical hits, "The Threepenny Opera," written by Bertolt Brecht. The play will run the entire week of the 18th and Monday through Wednesday of the following week. "Threepenny Opera" represents the combined efforts of the Department of Music and the Department of Theatre Arts. The Musical direction is by Mr. Ronald Wooden, while the staging is by Mr. Ivan Crosland. This dynamic and unorthodox show will be the major Weber State musical effort of the year. The story satirizes not only the unbelievable plots of grand opera, but many factors of contemporary life as well. The hero, or anti-hero, MacHeath (Mack the Knife) is a highwayman who has fallen in love with Polly, the pure and simple daughter, of J.J. Peachum. Peachum operates a school and business composed of professional beggers, to whom he teaches the most effective means of bilking the sympathetic donor. Despite his own work, Peachum refuses to have his innocent daughter remain married to MacHeath. In the end, MacHeath is at last sentenced to hang, and he is saved only by a last minute miracle. The most familiar song from this musical play is the famous "Mack the Knife." Other songs include "The Pirate Jenny," " The Ballad of Dependency," "The World is Mean," "The Ballad of the Easy Life," and "The Jealosy Duet." The relatively small cast is made up of some of the most talented and highly selected talent in the college and community. W"1 f -SfcVv ?

Ballet Variety Slated Nov. 12 The repertoire of the group ranges all over Latin America, as well as a wide variety of geographical areas within Venezuela itself, such as the island of Margarita, Yaracuy, Balovento, the Andes, the Llanos, etc. The numbers include dashing Venezuelan joropes for dancers in pairs, impressions of Peru's cholo fruit vendors and songs of northern Argentina. Also a courting number from Guatemala in which mother, daughter, and suitor take part, a tender love duet of Ecuador's Otavolo Indians, comic pant-omines, ceremonial dances in the form of one-act ballets, a Zazuela with dancing, singing and dialogue, a group of dances from the Spanish Colonial period, and dances which are reminiscent of flamenco and zapateado. They are danced in a variety of footwear, or none at all. Costumes for each number are taken from the area which Is being depicted and are designed with the utmost taste and imagination by the company's founder, star, and artistic director Yolands Moreno.

|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.|
