Pitchforth On Extrav

Pitchforth On Extrav

The administration of Extrav must be ready to start production at the beginning of the Varsity year.

A high quality script should be finalised by the previous December. Production should be of a high standard, such a condition necessitates the assistance of relevant cultural groups within the Student Organisation.

These were some of Roger Pitchforth's ideas about the revitalising of Extrav. He felt that it needed to be run by-students to a greater degree. With the support of the Music Society and Drama Club, the tenor of Extrav could be raised.

The time had come when Extrav needed a rethink. Students should change their naive approach that Wellington liked seeing a shambles, in the light of the facts that most of the audience was attending due to their loyalty to the University.

In spite of the massive advertising by Extrav committees, intending participants often found themselves up against an Extrav clique at casting meetings, which naturally dampened the spirits of those not so thick skinned.

"Students with skill use it-there must be some talent in 4000 University Students!"
