Student Extravaganza Revived

A Cast full of big names is out to revive the golden age of the student revue at Victoria University on Saturday.

Roger Hall, Cathy Downes, Keith Aberdein, Libby Holloway, Dave Smith and Steve Whitehouse are among a large group of former Victoria students putting on O Extravaganza! at the Memorial Theatre in the Student Union.

Whitehouse is returning from his position with United Nations in New York and Aberdein is flying in from Melbourne for the show, being mounted by the recently launched Victoria University Alumni Association.

The irreverent and bawdy student revues used to be a major feature of student life, and many who appeared in them went on to rewarding careers in entertainment.

But it is now 30 years since the last performance of a Victoria "Extrav" and the old students felt it was time the tradition was revived.
