High School Auditorium, March 4, 1930, 8:00 o’clock
Jonas H. Pennington, an American millionaire pickle manufacturer, with his daughter, June, arrives in Vienna amidst preparations for the annual carnival. To his consternation he finds Jones, his advertising expert, advertising Pennington’s Peter Piper Pickles too well. An old acquaintance, Lady Vivian, a wealthy Englishwoman, also arrives on her annual quest in search of her daughter, who was lost near Vienna at carnical time when a baby. Kinski, the pompous police chief, plots to substitute the lost child of Lady Vivian and marry her for the fortune. A band of Gypsies visits the carnival led by Jigo, the chieftain, and his supposed daughter, Ilona. Events lead all to the Gypsy camp, where a magic pool reveals the face of Lady Vivian’s daughter. Arthur Crefont, a poor artist, wins recognition of his art and also the hand of June Pennington. Lady Vivian consents to become Mrs. Pennington; Kinski’s plot is exposed; Ilona is restored to her mother and Jones is rewarded with success in his campaign for the hand of Ilona.
