At the time we go to press the latest Information available is that the Exec. met last Sunday to consider a report from Dave Cohen representing the Extrav. Script Selection Committee. Two important things were decided.
1. A script was selected; but important amendments were to be made to it.
2. It is probable that Extrav. will take place in the 1st week of the May vacation; if not this, then the 2nd week.
The authors of the selected script have been asked to have their amended version ready by Monday, April 3. The next nine days will be taken up in typing the script and printing it for general distribution.
So for all concerned it is to be noted that the Casting meeting will be held on Thursday, April 13.
This will give four complete week-ends and [unclear: Ansas] Day to rehearse with—not too long and not too short for the average Extrav. competitor.
This year it will be advisable for controllers and cast to remember not to follow the example of lost year. The time and effort taken by everyone was not worth the profit that was made on the show—only £60. It is probable that a little austerity in some departments and a more widely circularised advertising scheme will help in this direction.
