George Francis Reynolds (1900)

[Born Essex 24 May 1880]

George Francis Reynolds made his stage debut as a tenor chorister in The Rose of Persia with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company "D" in Brighton in April 1900. The tour, and Reynolds' D'Oyly Carte association, ended in December of that year. Reynolds subsequently sang tenor parts in The Geisha, A Greek Slave, My Lady Molly, and other works.

Reynolds went into business management in 1907. After stints with Oscar Asche and Lily Brayton, with Oswald Stoll in Leicester, and at the Manchester Hippodrome, he was appointed general manager of the Alhambra Theatre, London, in 1920. Reynolds later served as director of the Stoll Group and Jack Hylton Ltd., among other businesses.
