Some Empty Tins

Some Empty Tins

Dear Salient,

I should like to take this opportunity of thanking the technical staff of the Extravaganza for their fine work before and during the show. These people get very little credit for the amount of work they perform yet their services are in every way as essential as those of the leading players.

Among my many helpers, I should like to thank personally the following people:—

Mr. McKenna of the Opera House, due to whose help and guidance I was able to construct the Monastery set amongst others.

Mr. M. Mitchell for his many excellent and useful suggestions and his efficient handling of the stage effects. Mr. G. Eiby for the vast amount of time and energy which he put into the making of the properties and also Miss Pearl West and Mr. Edwards for their painstaking work in connection with the scene painting.

Mr. G. Turner for performing one of the worst of all tasks connected with the Extrav., namaly, cleaning up after the final night and despatching the properties etc. back to Victoria College.

Miss Doris Stephenson, Miss Doris Johannson and Miss Kate Ross for the outstanding costumes.

Mr. W. Conroy, of B.O.C. Signs for his constant help and advice and also for the nainting of the Air Raid Shelter.

I should also like to offer my sincere, thanks to others backstage who performed the other innumerable small, but none the less, responsible tasks such as the curtain, flys, property moving, etc.

I should also like to congratulate the call-boy, Mr. Hands, whose task is always difficult and it was even more so this year owing to the large amount of doubling.

H. Williamson.
