Celebrating 84 Years Of Theatre Tradition

masksLas Mascaras Speech & Drama Club is the oldest active social organization on campus! Born 84 years ago, "Las Mas" was created to support the dramatic activities on campus. Named by former Vice President Edwin Potter, who was a charter member, Las Mascaras translates into "the Maskers". Today any TJC student interested in Speech or Theatre activities can join the club. Members work on production crews for membership points. After earning 75 points and paying dues of $10.00, new members are initiated. Las Mascaras is not just a group of students, but alumni as well. (See Alumni) Once a member, you're always a member. Membership mailings span the globe.

The Purpose ........... the Las Mascaras constitution states, "The purpose of Las Mascaras Speech and Drama Club shall be to further the skills and interests of students of Tyler Junior College in the fields of Speech and Dramatic Arts by continuous and active participation in all such areas.

It shall also be the purpose of the Las Mascaras Speech and Drama Club to further the interests and advance the knowledge of the people of this and surrounding areas by public performance of material of the highest caliber.
