Original Freiburg Passion Play
Cast Will Present Drama
Feb. 20, 21.
The Freiburg Passion Play will be
presented Friday a n d Saturday,
Feb. 20 and 21, in Hill auditorium
with its original cast, as produced
in the summer of 1922 in Germany,
it was stated yesterday by Valen-
tine B. Windt, director of Play Pro-
duction. Play Production is spon-
soring the presentation.
The presentation will be given a
local aspect by the participation of
more than 200 students in the af-
fair. Prof. Earl V. Moore, of the
School of Music, is training a chor-
us of 200 voices to participate in
the choir, while another 100 stu-
dents will take the parts of "supers"
in several scenes.
The Passion Piay is a veritable
heritage of the ages. Centuries be.e
fore Shakespeare was born, the
Play was being given in Freiburg.
It dates from 1246, and is many
years older than the famous Ober-

The adjective "little' is used here
