G. T. R. Knorr as Dick Deadeye in H.M.S. Pinafore

G. T. R. Knorr (1880)

G. T. R. Knorr of the Unitarian Church, Germantown, Pennsylvania, appeared as Dick Deadeye in Philadelphia and on tour with Gorman's Church Choir Pinafore Company in 1879. From February to April 1880 he toured the U.S. as the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance with D'Oyly Carte's Fourth American Pirates Company. In April he transferred to Carte's Second Pirates Company where he appeared again as Pirate King and, on occasions when Pinafore was presented instead, as Dick Deadeye. The tour appears to have ended in May 1880.
