Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 4. April 27, 1959
The only objectionable part of this year's show may be the words "Heaven help New Zealand," sung in tune to a well-known anthem. It is the tune rather than the words that is suspect.
Though some of the old hands are not with Extravaganza this year, producer Terry Browne is fortunate in having half a dozen "talented" people to take parts.
In the show again this year are Des Deacon, Julian Watts, David Lind-Mitchell, John Tannahill, Sharon Thompson and Liz Beck.
The chorus is smaller than usual, but with better enunciation they could make the racy tunes give the show a sparkle at least equal to last year.
This year the music will be supplied by Pat Harrington and colleagues. Peter Standen is in charge of the sets.
