This year the group was breaking in a new Recruiting Sergeant, with the experienced actor and the newcomer playing the part at alternate venues. Two actors likewise alternated the roles of Doctor and musician, as they have done in previous years. However, at this year's penultimate performance in The Gleaners, both Sergeants came on simultaneously saying alternate lines, and the Doctor musicians did likewise. It was not as confusing as it may sound.
