The review featured a group based on the Beatles that I think might have been called the 'Earwigs' - they are centre stage wearing the wigs.

Lin Fardell tells us:
This was a fourth year review put on for the rest of the school - I remember it as 1964, although with Howard Smith's phenomenal memory, perhaps I'm wrong!
It was called 'Mrs Bidgood's Wednesday Afternoon at the William Torbitt' a skit on 'Val Parnell's(?) Sunday Night at the London Palladium' and, yes, the group were called 'The Earwigs'! In fact I played the part of a 'screaming fan' who ran on to the stage, fainted, and was carted off on a trolley! Hilary (Gold) and I sung a duet - 'I don't want to go to the party with you', a pop song of the time.
The reviews were a tradition at that time; those leaving that year put it on for the rest of the school - it was never shown to parents!
