German Studies Alumni Event

 The Arsonists

Do you remember reading Biedermann und die Brandstifter in your UMD German course? On Saturday, February 29, join fellow alumni at the Underground Theatre in Duluth to see a new production of The Arsonists, directed by Mike Pederson, who first fell in love with the play as a student here.

Reconnect with old classmates, and rediscover this timely play by Swiss author Max Frisch. Special discounted tickets are available to UMD alumni; get them before they sell out! The cost to attend is $15 per person. Guests are invited to join Kristen Hylenski, Associate Professor of German Studies, at the theatre bar for drinks and conversation following the show (guests are responsible for purchasing their own food and drinks).
