The cast for the first tour of Yeomen was largely familiar. By the time of the second visit in the autumn, Fred Billington had settled on the role of Wilfred, and sang it throughout his career, but here can also be seen as the Sergeant.

Casts from theatre programmes in Lamb Collection, Dundee City Library.

Additional Scottish tour dates to be confirmed.
