The HSPVA program was indeed started in 1971 and the original campus was the old San Jacinto High School campus at 1300 Holman (now HCC) which they shared with Houston Technical Institute where trades such as welding and auto mechanics were taught. HSPVA remained at that campus for many years until the new school was built. The Jewish Synagogue became part of that campus and was used as the theatre and called, I believe, the Holman Theatre. The school was not in a Synagogue downtown, unless you call Midtown downtown. No one called it Midtown back then.

:-) I partially stand corrected. I knew that the synagogue was a part of the program, and I knew is was midtown and loosely referred to it as downtown. I'd forgotten the part about San Jacinto HS. Thanks!
