The cast for this revival had many of the previous seasons cast, though two of the company's stars, Heddle Nash and Dennis Noble, were replaced by Ben Williams and Frank Sale. The ladies and conductor were unchanged. The other adjustment was to relocate The Blue Danube to the party scene, where it was danced by Evelyn Clare and Alison Vivian (it had previously been a strangely placed concert item introducing the third act).

Cast details from a programme in the Edinburgh City Library.
