Notes

When Ellen Sheean had to drop out of the play for 'personal reasons' for a number of performances, her role was taken by the director Stephen Mallatratt playing the role of Old Queen Cole (as a Christmas show in the UK, this would barely have lifted an eye-lid given the propensity for pantomime dames!).
