Warwick Gray (1883-84)

Warwick Gray joined the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy in 1883, assuming the part of Private Willis in Iolanthe for the last weeks of the initial run. On January 5, 1884, he created the part of Guron in Princess Ida, playing it throughout the run, which ended in October. It was his only engagement with the D'Oyly Carte organization.

Little is known about his career before or after the D'Oyly Carte other than that he ran a juvenile opera company in the late 1880s.
