SHAKESPEAREAN MASQUERADE BALL TO BE HELD AT OLD DOMINION APRIL 1

"Masquerade of Fools," a Shakespearean masquerade ball, will be held from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., Saturday, April 1, at Old Dominion University. Sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, the ball will be in the Webb University Center cafeteria. It is open to the campus community and the general public.

Masquerade costumes or semiformal attire are required to attend. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes and music will be provided by Astro Disk Jockeys. Jesters, games and a staged Elizabethan sword fight will highlight the evening. In addition, refreshments representative of the Elizabethan period will be available.

The masquerade ball was planned by Sigma Tau Delta to stimulate interest in literature and writing. Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase books for needy children in the Hampton Roads area.

Tickets are $5 in advance or $7.50 at the door, and are available at the Naro Expanded Video, 802 Spotswood Ave. in Norfolk; the English department, room 220, Batten Arts and Letters Building; or from a Sigma Tau Delta member.
