THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY
Ivy Page-Croft (1917-18, 1920-22)
[Born 11 Aug 1898, died Canada Nov 2001]
Born Ivy Lilly Lawrence Page, Ivy Page-Croft was known as Ivy Page when she served with the D'Oyly Carte Repertory Opera Company from July 1917 to December 1918. She assumed the parts of Kate in The Pirates of Penzance and Giulia in The Gondoliers in October 1917, and also appeared for portions of her tenure as the Lady Saphir in Patience, Leila in Iolanthe, and Peep-Bo in The Mikado.
She rejoined the Repertory Company as a chorister in March 1920. Over the next two years her duties appear to have been limited to the chorus. She left the D'Oyly Carte for the second and last time in April 1922.
