Question: One of the mistakes on this site state that you can see Crutchy dancing without the use of his crutch. When and during which number?

Answer: During the "Two for a Penny" sequence in Carrying the Banner, you can see Crutchy dancing in one of the back rows on the right without his crutch. You can also see him walking without it behind David during the first Sieze the Day when David sings "Arise and seize the day!"
