Old Nick Company
Agency Number:
Start Date:
01 Jan 1948
Old Nick was created in unison with the first of its uni revues in 1948, in an attempt to harness the student exuberance which had seen the annual Commemoration Days of several previous years degenerate into public chaos. To demonstrate that a student revue would be tasteful and would not cause further public outrage, a professional director and producer, Keith Jarvis, was approached to take on the task. Keith directed the first twelve revues before students took on the production side of the Company. The name Old Nick Company satirised the highly memorable Australian tour by the Old Vic Company starring Laurence Olivier and Vivienne Leigh.
