Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 4 March 29, 1939
Our representative has been privileged to obtain first-hand Information of the shows selected for "Cappicade, 1939," and from a rapid glance at the scripts, "Salient" was convinced that this year's Extrav, will be bigger, brighter and more "peppy" than ever before.
Miss Kean, organiser of this year's "Cappicade," has arrangements well in hand for the production, which will run at the Opera House on April 22nd, 24th, 26th and 27th. She also expressed the opinion that the shows selected are excellent in every respect.
The programme will be as follows:
"Comes the Dawn," described in the preamble as "A Spectral Prelude." Written by R. L. Meek. It should be a fitting opening to the programme. The gems from past Extravs, will be presented, and several well-known stars will be featured.
"Adam in Wonderland." Composed and conceived by those prolific playwrights the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom." this show has a background of phantasy of the Lewis Carroll type, plus a good dash of facts and near-facts.
John Carrad's Interlewd this year apparently surpasses all his previous efforts. It is entitled "The Dinkum Oil," an interlewd in the best Carrad style, with catchy Bong and dance numbers that will go down in history. We are reliably informed that back-chat artist "Charlie McCarthy" is featured.
The final show of the evening, written by R. L. Meek. Is tentatively entitled "The Vikings." A concise, snappy show, with good topical interest it will cover a wide field in 60 minutes. Bright ballets, original songs and choruses, are a feature of this show, which will be produced by Ralph Hogg.
Miss Helen Maysmor has been appointed Wardrobe Mistress and will be grateful for offers of assistance in this important work. So, girls, practise your sewing, and do your bit towards making this year's Extrav, better than ever.
