Enthusiastic Workers

Particular rehearsals are dealt with on other pages of this issue. They differ in detail, but they have this in common; they all show an extraordinary spirit of co-operation amongst the whole cast if you take a glance around the Gym you will find students of every shape, size and description taking their part in the show. Arts students, science students, law students, T.C. students, freshers, graduates, swotters, loafers, etc., etc., are all to be seen rehearsing or singing or just sitting waiting to go on. It is probable that this Extravaganza will produce more cooperation among all the various sides of College life than anything else in the past two years.

For it is not only among the actual cast that this working in unity is so evident. There are dozens of other people whose part in the show is equally as important as that of the players themselves. Think of the property men, working every evening to make the stage complete, of the wardrobe mistress and her team, sewing away for dear life to get their dresses finished in time, of the financial controller always ready to assist, of the publicity squad writing scripts, arranging photos and sticking up posters. They have all been going ahead quietly behind the scenes, ensuring the success of the show. Remembering that all this work is voluntary, one is struck by the fine way in which everyone has buckled into his or her Job.
