Cast information is taken from the Scotsman (6 March). The reviewer wrote " The popularity of Fledermaus shows no sign of waning, and its delightful music had an enthusiastic reception at the King's Theatre last night...In the ballroom scene, the customary 'Blue Danube' was replaced by a charming Pas de deux by dancers whose names were not given in the programme. Mr Charles Webber conducted a performance which throughout was brilliant."

The tour consisted of one week at the King's Theatre, Edinburgh then two at the King's Theatre, Glasgow.
