'Peru ‘Dramatic Qlub
THIS year Peru Dramatic Club celebrated its twentieth anniversary. It is the oldest college dramatic organization in the State. The club was organized on October 22, 1908, by Mrs. Daisy B. Nettleton Taylor, who is now living at Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
The week of October 22 to 27, was set aside in commemoration. During the week the first play produced by the Club, "An American Citizen,” was read library style; Varro E. Tyler, who was president during the first year spoke at a luncheon held in his honor. The week closed with the production of “The Poor Nut.” An eight-page pamphlet was published and sold during the week, and The Pedagogian, the college newspaper, ran a special dramatic club edition.
The Peru Dramatic Club sponsors the M. I. N. K. Dramatic contest for high schools and also the Peru Playmakers, an organization of writers of acceptable plays. During the year a new cyclorama and two sets of scenery with practical doors were added to the stage equipment. The membership of the club is limited at 80 full members. Membership may be gained twice a year by tryout only.
