Contribution to South African theatre and performance
For a while (185--1852) he was apparently the leading figure of the Officers of the Garrison, and specifically the 73rd Regiment's theatrical endeavours. Hence the company is frequently referred to as Captain Hall's Company. After this (1853 to 1855) he appears to only have acted for the Officers of the Garrison.
Besides his managerial role, he himself was thus one of their main performers.
