Program Board announces first event of spring semester

Program Board will kick off its spring schedule during the first week of the semester.

The organization will host "Cards Against Hypnosis" with David Hall at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12 at Plachta Auditorium.

Hall is a hypnotist who has been entertaining audiences since 1998, according Metropolis Management. The booking agency's page states that in "Cards Against Hypnosis," Hall throws a random ball into the crowd and the person who catches it will be shown two large cards — a black card which shows a scenario or skit and a white card with possible outcomes.

Based on what the person chooses, the skit will be performed by hypnotized participants who are on-stage.

A phone call to Angela Distelrath, executive director of Program Board, was not immediately returned.

Program Board ended the winter semester with an event titled "Dating with Dave Ahdoot" on Dec. 6. Damon Brown, director of the office of Student Activities and Involvement, said in December that Program Board has about $120,000 to work with for the 2017 spring semester, with a concert being planned in McGuirk Arena later in the semester.
