Cast & Crew
(22nd April 1943 – 1843)
During the sword fight in the play, Webster received a blow from his opponent’s sword to his larynx, so he was unable to sing for over a week. Victor Standing took over the part for a short time, but as he had another engagement, Derek Oldham stepped in until Webster was well enough to continue in the part.
