At this time the annual tour by the main D'Oyly Carte company in Scotland included two weeks each in Aberdeen and Dundee as well as periods in Edinburgh and Glasgow. In the two northern cities The Yeomen of the Guard was given on the first Tuesday and the second Friday at each venue.

The cast is drawn from reviews of Tuesday 21 October in the Dundee Advertiser and Dundee Courier & Argus. Who took over from a flu-stricken Edward McKeown at the final Dundee performance has not been established.

Glasgow and Edinburgh dates to be confirmed.
