Extrav Going To Hastings

Extrav Going To Hastings

Extravaganza 1955 was a howling success. It was a success because it drew full houses (the last gallery seat was sold almost an hour before Thursday night's performance); because it created a good impression with the public; because everyone enjoyed being in it; and because it made money.

Arrangements are now well under way for the show to travel to Hastings, where it will give two performances during the Queen's Birth day weekend. Proceeds of the tour will go to a charity named by the Greater Hastings Organisation, which is making all arrangements.

Extrav personnel will travel to Hastings on Friday night, will be billeted privately for the weekend, and will return immediately after the Monday night performance in the Municipal Theatre, Hastings.

Travelling costs will be met out of takings at the performances, but members of the cast are making a contribution of 10/- per head, in accordance with a decision of the executive at an emergency meeting on Saturday, May 14. A full report of the Hawke's Bay tour, together with more about Extrav, will be published in the next issue of "Salient."
