This tour saw the week divided into two sections, with The Sorcerer in repertoire with HMS Pinafore. The curtain-raiser every evening was In the Sulks.

The cast is taken from The Comet in the Lamb Collection 253 (5) of Dundee City Library. One oddity of casting, which may be a typographical error in the programme, is the indication that Mr J Lehay played the romantic lead, Alexis, in The Sorcerer, while in the same week taking the character role of Sir Joseph in Pinafore. This needs to be clarified by reference to reports from other venues.

Other Scottish dates to be confirmed.
