O Extravaganza! The Great Extrav Reunion Weekend & Capping Revue Revival [1993]

What's On — Male Ballet to Star at Extravaganza

What's On

Male Ballet to Star at Extravaganza

The Male Ballet, a Victoria University tradition which was carried on for several decades, will be revived at an Extravaganza reunion concert next month.

The ballets were a feature of the shows, which were the forerunners of the capping revues of today.

Alumni relations manager Sharon Major said there had been a lot of interest in the reunion concert, to be held on July 17, and it seemed all the seats would be pre-sold.

Some of New Zealand's best known entertainers and personalities have launched their careers in Extravs, among them television presenter Paul Holmes, actress Barbara Ewing and comedian John Clarke.

However, organisers want to hear from the hundreds of others that have walked the boards in Extravs. Former actors interested in appearing in the show should contact the Alumni Relations Centre at Victoria University.
