Following the performance, Ben Cross, Nigel Havers, Nicholas Farrell, and Alice Krige, who appeared in film, were introduced to stage stars James McArdle, Jack Lowden, Tam Williams, Mark Edel-Hunt, and Savannah Stevenson.

The cast also includes Sam Archer (Athlete), Joe Bannister (Frank), Antonia Bernath (Florence Mackenzie), Natasha Broomfield (Jennie Liddell), Gareth Charlton (Athlete), Henry Davis (Athlete), Lloyd Everitt (Athlete), Daniel Fraser (Athlete), Nickolas Grace (Master Of Trinity), Leemore Marrett Jr (Athlete), David Newman (Prince of Wales), Matthew Pearson (Sandy McGrath), Simon Slater (Mr Liddell/Foster), Paul Tinto (Secretary of the Gilbert and Sullivan Society), Simon Williams (Master of Caius), and Nicholas Woodeson (Sam Mussabini).

Costumes are by Michael Howells with lighting by Rick Fisher, choreography by Scott Ambler and sound by Paul Groothuis. The production features the legendary music of Vangelis with additional live music and arrangements by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Carr.
