The TAMUSA Theatre Club is hosting its inaugural cabaret event 6:30-8 p.m. Nov. 19 in 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 JagSync, but it won’t be required for entry.
The club is hoping the event will show off what the club is all about and attract people to join.
“It’s open to anybody, even if they don’t have experience,” said Miguel Salaiz, vice president of the club.
Salaiz added he wants the club to feel like a family, a place where people can be themselves in a safe space.
The club is still adding acts to the show, and Salaiz said anyone interested in participating is welcome to join.
Meetings are 1-4 p.m. every Friday in the auditorium. The meetings will be split up into three parts: an acting portion 1-2 p.m., a business meeting 2-3 p.m. and a tech rehearsal 3-4 p.m.
The Theatre Club was founded in 2020 but had progress delayed due to the pandemic. Now, in 2021, members are getting the chance to put on their first show for 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 bunch of people, it’s going to be so much easier to put a show together.”
The club has around 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.
