The senior class of the Logan High School will give Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream" on Thursday, May 22 on the school grounds on the hill.  A large amphitheatre has been constructed and the electric lighting effects are being rapidly installed for this play of fancy.  The play is a dream within a dream; dream figures from songs of a past world.  Fairies, nymphs and strange people of the wood and glen abounds.

The admission is 25 cents and tickets can be obtained from pupils of the high school.  The proceeds will be used to complete payment on the piano purchase last year for the school.  Following is a list of the characters in the play.
