George Humphrey as Baron Acacia in Baron Galosh

George Humphrey (1897-98)

George Humphrey took his first role on the London Stage as Gustave in the musical comedy Mam'zelle Nitouche at the Trafalgar Square from May to August 1893. Over the next several years he appeared often in London musical, comedy and dramatic productions at the Criterion (1893), Strand (1893-94), Avenue (1894-95), Trafalgar (1895), Gaiety (1896), Opera Comique (1896), and Shaftesbury (1897) Theatres.

In December 1897 he joined in the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy to play the role of Nepomuc in the revised production of The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein. The Grand Duchess ran until March 1898, at which point Humphrey's D'Oyly Carte engagement ended.

Humphrey later appeared at the Prince of Wales's Theatre in the comic operas The Royal Star (September-December 1898) and La Poupee (December 1898-February 1899). After a gap of fifteen years, he returned to the London Stage in the comedy Potash and Perlmutter (Queen's, 1914-15) and the musical play Mr. Manhattan (Prince of Wales's, 1916).
