"Alt Heidelberg," which is to be
presented in its original form at the
Athens Theatre here Friday evening,
January 29, is one of the few plays
that afford students an opportunity to
hear German spoken ou the stage.
The entire performance will be given
in German, so that all persons inter-
ested in that language will be afford-
ed a unique entertainment.
A number of students and prfess-
oors of the University, who are en-
gaged in work in German are, plan-
ning to attend.
The play will be produced in Ann
Arbor by the German Theatre Stock
Company of Cleveland. The entire
male portion of the company will be
used. Special scenery is carried
showing the Castle of Heidelberg,
and the famous old Inn where the
students assemble for their jolly
A number of students and profes-
sors of the University, who are en-
words. Karl Heinrich, the hereditary
prince of Sachen-Karlsberg, has grown
into manhood surrounded by the form-
alities and restrictions of court life
with no brothers or sisters or youth-
fuil companions. He is tutored, guard.-
ed, directed and watched until, ar-
riving at maturity he is as little in-
formed of the outside world as a veri-
table child. It is now decided to send
him to Heidelberg for a year's study
at the university and he is accom-
panied by Dr. Juttner, who has for
fifteen years been his tutor and only
confidant. Juttner, though an old
man, broken in health, devoted to
and in sympathy with his charge, has
preserved a young heart and is de-
lighted to be given the opportunity to
pass his last days at Heidelberg, so
utear to his youth.
Arriving at Heidelberg, the prince
is received warmly by the students
who immediately discovering the
sweet side of his nature before know-
ing that he is the crown prince, love
him and take him into their heart
frolics and corps, and open up a new
and beautiful existence to the unsoph-
isticated young man. The spirit and
actual joy of the life in which Karl
Heinrich now finds himself are shared
by the lovable old Dr. Juttner, whose
simplicity and sweetness of nature
appeal to the open hearted students,
whos make hi t one of themselves.
Of course the prince falls in love
with Katie, a sweet little bar-maid,
the idol of the students. She is the
first really human girl u, woman he
has ever seen and the attraction is
immediate and mutual. At the end
of four moneths and in the midst of
tremendous frolic the news that the
king has been incapacitated by a
stroke of paralysis is brought to Karl
Heinrich and most reluctantly and on-
ly after a great struggle is he com-
pelled to return to the capital anT as-
sume the regency; and during the
two following years his heart is filled
with the memories of those four joy-
ous months of freedom and compan-
ionship until at last upon the eve of
his marriage he determines to revisit
old Heidelberg. There he is met sol-
emnly and greeted with the deference
due his station by the students, near-
ly all of whom are new to him and
only little Katie is unchanged. Tak-
ing her in his arms and telling her of
his love for her he bids her a farewell
that is beautifully pathetic and re-
turns to Karlsberg.
"Alt Heidelberg" is said to lose
much of its natural charm by the
change from German to English and
the opportunity to see this master-
piece in its original form is one not
to be overlooked by the German stu-
