TYLER JUNIOR COLLEGE - "The Mascaras" - May 10, 1928
SHAKESPEARIAN PLAY TO BE PRESENTED

MASCARAS TO GIVE "AS YOU LIKE IT" TOMORROW NIGHT

Opportunity will knock at the door of every man, woman, and child in
Tyler Thursday evening, May 10, at 8:15 o'clock. And the opportunity of 
seeing a Shakespeare play is not one to close the door on, since a
Shakespearian play is so rarely produced here. "Make the best of every
opportunity" can well be applied to May 10, on which date the Junior College
Dramatic Club will present "As you Like It," the greatest comedy by the
greatest of authors. You read Shakespeare's plays and enjoy them, as
freshmen and sophomores in high school, as sophomores in college, and
after your school days are over; but unless you have seen one on the
stage you have no real conception of the action of his plays, and you
cannot enjoy them to the utmost. So why not come to see "As You Like It?"

These files are submitted by volunteers just like you! I make it a habit that anytime I work with records, whether for myself or to share with others, I submit them to the USGenWeb/TXGenWeb project. It doesn't take much extra effort and it really can help many people. I'm very grateful to the many volunteers for all the great info provided.
