TAMUSA Theater Club to Host Inaugural Event | Texas A&M University-San Antonio

The TAMUSA drama club is hosting its inaugural cabaret event from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on November 19 at the Auditorium.

The show will feature short form performances spanning genres and themes. The event is free and open to the public. Those planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP to the event on JagSyncbut it will not be required for entry.

The club hopes the event will show what the club is all about and inspire people to join.

“It’s open to everyone, even without experience,” said Miguel Salaiz, vice-president of the club.

Salaiz added that he wants the club to feel like a family, a place where people can be themselves in a safe space.

The club continues to add numbers to the show, and Salaiz said anyone interested in participating is welcome.

Salaiz encouraged potential members to join the organization on his JagSync page, attend one of the weekly meetings or email him at msala062@jaguar.tamu.edu for more information.

The meetings are 1 p.m.-4 p.m. every Friday in the auditorium. The meetings will be divided into three parts: an action part from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., a business meeting from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and a technical rehearsal from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The Theater Club was founded in 2020 but its progress has been delayed due to the pandemic. Now, in 2021, the members have the chance to bring their first show to the public.

Being a new organization putting on its first show isn’t easy though.

“Getting our name out there right now is our biggest challenge,” Salaiz said. “Once we have a group of people, it will be so much easier to put on a show.”

The club has about 30 members, he said.

Salaiz said the club would like to put on one or two big shows per semester, with smaller ones being held more regularly..
