Notes: A note on the photographs: In the production, to emphasize the Happy Ending, The Host Of The Garter Inn (Bob Krieger) would ask the company - now supposedly at a picnic - to gather together so he could take a picture of them, using an old instmatic. It got a big laugh. In order to make the flash, it was a functional camera and we put film in it. Though Falstaff (Ron Gural) was not to be in the shot, he would occasionally jump into the picture too. For the closing two-a-day, Cahill brought a good camera and so a couple of pretty fair cast pictures were the result...minus, of course, Gural (the lead) and Krieger (the photographer). Pictures of the cast's between shows picnic also seemed appropriate as an echo of the actual stage action.

Due to a prior commitment, Cahill was compelled to miss the first matinee performance and the role of Bardolph was filled by Sanzo.
