THE D'OYLY CARTE OPERA COMPANY

William White (1881-83)

William White took small parts in several of D'Oyly Carte's New York productions between 1881 and 1883, appearing at the Standard Theatre as Mr. Bunthorne's Solicitor in Patience (September 1881-March 1882), Manuel in Les Manteaux Noirs (September-October 1882), the Goblin Dwarf in Rip Van Winkle (October-November 1882), and the Lord Chancellor's Trainbearer in Iolanthe (November 1882-February 1883).

He also appeared as the Solicitor in a Carte-sanctioned revival of Patience at the same theatre in March-April 1883. Later New York roles came in Balfe's Satanella (Standard, May 1883), Stephens & Solomon's Billee Taylor (as Ben Barnacle, Casino, June 1885), and the farce comedy Little Puck (four theatres at various times in 1888, 1889, and 1890).
