Iago Lewys as the Town Crier in Dear Little Denmark

Iago Lewys (1896-1901)

Iago Lewys was a member of the D'Oyly Carte chorus at the Savoy from 1896 to 1901. During his tenure he appeared on a regular basis in three named parts:as Third Yeoman in The Yeomen of the Guard (May-November 1897), as the Foreman in Trial by Jury (June-November 1899), and as the Corporal in The Outpost, a companion piece that ran with The Pirates of Penzance and Patience (July-November 1900). He also filled in on occasion in several roles:Adam in His Majesty (February 1897), Giuseppe in The Gondoliers (September 1898), the Foreman in Trial (December 1898), and Captain Corcoran in H.M.S. Pinafore (September 1899). He was in the chorus for Patience (November 1900-April 1901) and The Emerald Isle (April-November 1901), but appears to have left the Company shortly thereafter.

His next named part on the London Stage was Camillo in a musical play called Miss Wingrove (Strand, 1905). He also appeared in The Three Kisses (Apollo, 1907), Dear Little Denmark (Prince of Wales's, 1909), Love and Laughter (Lyric, 1913), The Girl Who Didn't (Lyric, 1913-14), Miss Hook of Holland (Prince of Wales's, 1914), Violette (Lyric, 1918), The Eclipse (Garrick, 1919-20), The Curate's Egg (Ambassadors, 1922), and Mr. Garrick (Court, 1922).
