Drama Club Aid

Drama Club Aid

The Drama Club would be willing to help produce an Extravaganza if there was competent organising, said Josie Knight, President of the Drama Club.

Extravaganza is primarily to entertain, but It must say something, said Brian Wigney, a second year Arts student.

Brian would be prepared to write a script, which would be ready by the beginning of the academic year. He felt it should say at least a little of what part of the Varsity at least feels. It would be presented in a series of short revue type sketches. The plot line in this year's Extravaganza did not come off. Without Mum and Dad (the lead actors), it would have become a series of Revue type sketches, a trend he said he would follow.

Formerly a lot of the cast had been working hard on a patchy script. They should move away from the lavatory humour and unfinished Ideas, and include a good mixture of informed satire. To fill the show up with songs is to take the easy way out.

"A tremendous amount of energy and money is wasted because it lacks finish and is not going anywhere."
