Notes

> The Day Dumbfounded Got His Pylon featured a special guest appearance for this triple bill only of Eileen Derbyshire - better known as Emily Bishop (nee Nugent) in the long-running British television soap opera Coronation Street. By the time she performed in Scarborough, she had already been in the television show for five years.
>
The Day Dumbfounded Got His Pylon was presented as part of a triple bill (entitled Out Of Thin Air) alongside See The Pretty Lights and The Governor's Lady.
> In advertising for the triple bill, both Henry Livings - who wrote this play and starred in out - and Eileen Derbyshire were heavily promoted as special guests.
> A season brochure is not held for the 1965 season, so the precise date of the final performance is not definitive.
