Transcript STARS& BARS STARS AND BARS Stars and Bars first appeared on the Fiesta lot in 1951. Things had gone well—Stars and Bars had received the trophy as the first show constructed. Everything was ready for opening night, when tragedy occurred. The night before opening, the show caught fire and burned to the ground. Only charred remains of the front remained standing. In true Fiesta spirit, people from all over the campus came to help rebuild the show—and it was ready for the first performance on opening night. The star of the 1951 show was singer and dancer Roxy Hoskins, who was named to the "top ten acts." Directed by Lynn Christian, Dale Goulas, and Jack Payne, the 1951 show was judged fourth best on the midway. In 1952 Delta Theta joined forces with Tau Sigma sorority in the production of Stars and Bars. A New Orleans theme prevailed in this show. Singer and pianist Richard Smith was named "Top Master of Ceremonies" of the '52 Fiesta. "The Bar Scene," enacted by Bob Carroll and Winston Jones was also named to the "top ten." Directed by Lynn Christian and Jack Payne, this production was also judged fourth best on the midway. The 1953 production included a hot Dixieland Band again sparked by Richard Smith. The band was named to the "top ten," with Richard, best Master of Ceremonies for the second year. Directed by Lynn Christian and Bob Tharp, it was judged sixth place show. Stars and Bars has received the trophy this year as the first show constructed. It was completed on February 22 thus leaving plenty of time to concentrate on production. The 1954 theme, "Texas Under Six Flags," should be well carried out. 27
