THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

J. T. Macmillan as King Paramount in Utopia Limited

J. T. Macmillan (1892-94)

J. T. Macmillan made what may have been his London Stage debut in June 1891 as John Smith in a single matinee performance of the comedy A Trip to Gretna at the Vaudeville Theatre. He had earlier toured the British provinces, appearing with C. Bernard's Billee Taylor Company as Sir Mincing Lane in the mid-1880s.

He toured with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "D" from December 1892 to June 1894 and Carte's Company "A" from July-September 1894. His roles were Bedford Rowe in The Vicar of Bray, The McCrankie in Haddon Hall (both December 1892-December 1893), and King Paramount in Utopia Limited (from December 1893 forward).

Macmillan appeared sporadically in legitimate plays and musical comedy in London over the next twenty years. His last appearance in London was as Harry Hart in What Money Can Buy (a "drama of modern life," Lyceum, September-December 1923).
