D. J. NABORS
Peru Dramatic Club
D. J. Nabors has set the goal of Peru Dramatic Club higher than ever before. Since his coming to this campus in 1931. no production has seemed too difficult for mastery under his direction. With him leading the dramatic endeavors Peru is placing its banner on the top-most peak.
Ever since that first play, "Land of the Heart's Desire,” thrilled the Peru audience in 1908, the silver and black colors of the Peru Dramatic Club have been flying over this school. The silver has a double significance this year for 1933 marks the 25th anniversary of the organization. Daisy B. Nettleton Taylor directed that first group of Nebraska college students that decided "the play is the thing," and organized to study and present dramatic productions.
1933-1934 has been a greater, harmonizing note in the traditions which envelop the club. "Sun Up." "Doll's House" givon while Mrs. Anna Best Joder was director. "Peter Pan." "Berkeley Square." "The Royal Family" and numerous others in the past few years indicato that the "show is going on"—only the best, and most successful of shows!
"Gold in the Hills." the summer melodrama, the spectacular "Warrior's Husband," "The Poor Little Rich Girl." a story of fact and fantasy, the comedy. "One of the Family." and climaxing the year's club productions, "In the Shadow of a Rock." based on the founding of the little river town. Peru, Nebraska, have added a new chapter to the history of drama in Peru.
Drama is a composite thing. A play utilizes divergent talented types—costumers, designers, carpenters. electricians, make-up artists, and actors. Peru Dramatic Club, recognizing that acting is not the whole of drama, trains its members in the expression of all of their abilities that each individual may have the satisfaction of having produced something worthwhile.

THE WARRIOR’S HUSBAND
Trips—they've introduced Peru Dramatic Club to all of Southeastern Nebraska. “The Boor." “The Doctor in Spite of Himself." “Sparkin'." "Little Prison," and "Everyman" will always call to the mind of the persons who enacted them visions of numerous scrambles for make-up and costumes just before an evening's performance in some school or town.
Sponsoring the M. I. N. K. Dramatic Contest the club has made its reputation more than statewide. Each year a larger number of towns compete in the numerous divisions, and work of a higher quality is entered by the high schools from Missouri. Iowa. Nebraska, and Kansas.
Christmas guest night did much to arouse the true holiday spirit. To develop the most varied arts which make up true drama the purpose of each meeting, and to encourage creative ability an original one-act play contest was sponsored. As a climax to the year's activities came the annual luncheon-dance.
Real life is offered anyone who. endowed with the mysterious gift of one element of drama, gains admittance to this club. Having an inestimable heritage. Peru Dramatic Club has upheld its traditions in 1933-1934 and turns with expectancy to meet a new year, knowing that the future dawns rich with opportunity to add to the glories already entered in its name.
