Transcript I Was A Slave For SPB At the Student Program Board, often the remark "Join the Program Board: do everything" is exclaimed during periods of great anxiety brought on by the extreme pressure of organizing new, exciting, high- quality programs for the enjoyment of the entire student body. Even I, the even-tempered Visual and Performing Arts Vice-chair, have been known to utter damnations under my breath. This was especially true during the organizing of the precedent setting performance of La Bohme with Texas Opera Theater. One evening, after hours and hours of slaving over a computer and being interrupted by one too many phone calls, I answered the phone with a very business-like, "Program board — we never sleep!" much to the amusement of the person on the receiving end. He never realized just how serious I was. Of course I am not the only member of SPB to snap into the phone. I have overheard Cinema Chair Katrina Phillips chime in an incredibly sweet voice, "SPB-we never close." This is a tiny, tiny exaggeration of the truth. Admittedly, it does feel that way sometimes. I believe my most bizzare experience as a member of SPB happened during the Homecoming week, the single, most hectic period for us of the fall semester. While I was helping clean up after our Video Dance Party, I went down to the underground of the University Center (our headquarters), somehow managing to carry both the french-onion dip and my tired aching limbs without a major catastrophe. Or so I thought. On the way back, I was too tired to drag my exhausted body up two flights of stairs, so I took the elevator. Big mistake! Halfway between the first and second floor the elevator stopped. There I was at two o'clock in the morning, claustrophobic and alone in an elevator. Naturally, I was seized by panic and I frantically jabbed the alarm bell. The doors kept teasingly opening and exposing concrete wails and then closing again. I had visions of being left there all night or not being found for days. Luckily my Continued. Poor attendance plagued many programs this year, and for some — deservedly so. The Dallas Brass, however, was an act that deserved a much larger audience. They were booked in the Moody Towers cafeteria and publicity was on short notice to say the least. Their spectacular performance was seen by only about fifty lucky people. La Boheme attracted a reasonable crowd for Puccini's opera sung entirely in English. SPB brought the Texas Opera Theater to Wortham for one performance on campus. 301
