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




And what a unique and mind-blowing spectacle it will be when Victoria University's legendary Extrav members of many past decades gather in Wellington in July to perform three "student revues" at the Memorial Theatre. The occasion is the 30th anniversary of the last revue performed in the State Opera House. The Auckland mob will travel down by Silver Fern on July 16, seriously rehearsing, among other acts, an all-male ballet. Those involved in that are tipped to include film maker George Andrews, Under Silkwood bookshop proprietor Murray Gray, America's Cup PR guru Peter Debrecony and possibly Sir Michael Fay and Max Cryor. Other ex-Extrav members who may be secretly practising their pas de deux, pirouettes and vocal show stoppers are thought to include John Ferayhough, Liddy Holloway, Barbara Ewing, Hugh Rennie, Paul Holmes, Roger Hall, John Tannahill, Bobbie Gibbons, Deirdra Tarrant, Judge Barry Travers, & Jack [unclear: Wott] and co-organiser Bill Sheat. Tony Farrers, the Kiwi lawyer now practising in Queensland, will return to perform and our High Commissioner in Canberra Ted Woodfield may be talked into it. Foolish chap. Gray and Andrews are organising the Auckland end of this event and would like similar dramatically-inclined ex-students to join them on May 17 at 5.30pm to 7pm at Old Government House — when more will be revealed
