Geoffrey Wright (1906-07, 1908-10, 1920-26)
Geoffrey Wright was a chorister with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the Savoy for the First London Repertory Season (December 1906-August 1907), appearing on occasion as Major Murgatroyd in Patience (July) and Annibale in The Gondoliers (July and August). He next appeared with the D'Oyly Carte Principal Repertory Opera Company on tour from October 1908 to April 1909, when he took the part First Citizen in The Yeomen of the Guard. He was a chorister with that Company for much, if not all, of the July 1909-June 1910 season.
Over a decade later, Wright returned to the D'Oyly Carte organization:this time spending six seasons, from July 1920 to July 1926, as a member of the D'Oyly Carte Repertory Opera Company chorus. He took no named parts during those years.
