Additional Notes George Rignold, born George Richard Rignall (1839-1912), was an English born actor-manager. Between 1875-76 Rignold played Henry V and toured the United States and Canada. From 28 August 1876 his run of twenty-four successive performances of Henry V was the first 'long run' of a Shakespearian play in the Australian theatre. In 1880-87 Rignold toured America and Australasia. In 1887-95 he partnered James Allison at Her Majesty's Theatre, Sydney, and opened on 10 September with Henry V. He held the lease of Her Majesty’s Theatre for almost ten years and hosted a series of national and international stars in dramatic and operatic performances. (Information from Helen M.
