It was a whirlwind of a day. I had planned on going for a run, eating a quiet dinner, and then doing some homework before going to bed. All of that changed when a friend of mine offered me tickets to “The Price is Right Live” which was being hosted at Clowes Hall.
So I wolfed down a quick dinner, and got in line an hour and a half early with my friends in order to register our seats for the possibility of being selected to go down and have our chance at winning. Unfortunately, I was never selected to go down. It turns out that three, count ‘em THREE other Andrew’s were called down. Each time I felt like I had choked on my own stomach.
It was a generally quiet game until one Butler student won a trip to Las Vegas! The crowd went wild, she went wild, but I’m still a bit skeptical. How can a trip of that magintude only cost around $1200? Perhaps the flight wasn’t included, or perhaps it’s more of a hostel than a hotel that she’s staying at. In either case, I was jealous along with the rest of the crowd.
Clowes Hall is the pride of Butler, a fantastic performance hall that brings in amazing performances from around the world. This week it was a Broadway performance of “Beauty and the Beast.” Being unable to go myself, I decided to interview someone who did. Stephanny Tauber is a senior Arts Administration Major who has quite the passion for performance.
Hey! Those people sure the fun hotspots around town
“Beauty and the Beast being at Clowes was so great not only because of the mug scene, or the fact that I want to be Belle, or even that it’s right here on campus, but because I was able to take my residents” (she’s also a resident assistant at the girl’s dorm) “without having to drive them.”
“Having an auditorium like that so close gets students excited about performing arts, which is good for a girl graduating with an arts administration degree.” So there you have it. Straight from the source of all things theater. This should also enforce the idea that being in the “Butler Bubble” does not mean you are cut off from the outside world. It just means that the outside world wants to come to us.
