In honor of the Tercentenary Celebrations of St. La Salle’s Legacy, the DLSU Harlequin Theatre Guild presents “Titser ko si La Salle!”, a trilogy on educators that get its inspiration from the life and mission of St. John Baptist de La Salle. The plays are written by De La Salle University Literature Professors, Dr. Gen Asenjo, Mr. Genaro R. Gojo-Cruz, and Mr. Maynard Manansala, and directed by Mr. Romualdo Tejada.
“Titser ko si Lasalle!” aims to shed light on the struggles and sacrifices that Filipino teachers face on this present day may it be concerning their occupation or their personal lives. This production is dedicated to the teachers that have touched and inspired the lives of their students whether in the setting of a classroom or beyond the walls of a scholarly institution.
