Transcript BELLA UNION The BELLA UNION, a name synonymous with the Old Frontier. We give you the BELLA UNION as she was in the "gay days" of old San Francisco in all of her hilarity and glittering glamour. Annual Fiesta goers need not be told of the BELLA UNION, for they know from past shows what she has to offer. This has been established by the BELLA UNION taking top gate receipts for the past seven years. In 1953 she took First Place Show honors thus taking possession of the coveted Joe Koppel Award. The BELLA UNION has never placed lower than third. She presented four of the Top Ten Fiesta acts in 1953, a record unmatched by any other show, but tied once by herself in 1951. The BELLA UNION is noted for many firsts other than those mentioned above. She is the first and only show to have a balcony, first to use the blinking light sign, first and only show ever to take four prize winning trophies during one Fiesta. She has given Fiesta two General Chairmen with Harry Scott in 1949 and Charlie Snyder in 1951. She completely changed the concept of construction by being the first to utilize telephone poles and the steel stage truss. These and many other items are the things that make the BELLA UNION one of the top shows in Frontier Fiesta. The BELLA UNION maintains a production type show. She has been acclaimed by many as "The Broadway Show of Frontier Fiesta." Last year's CHINATOWN production number was the first production ever picked as one of the Top Ten Acts. This year, as last year, the BELLA UNION is presented, produced, and directed by the Gan Bey Fraternity and Delta Sigma Sorority. We hope it pleases you as much as it pleases us to bring it to you. 13
