W. Hamilton Webber's theatre collaborations include composing original incidental music and songs for a number of the Fullers productions, including Frank Neil's 1918 pantomime Bluebeard and three of Nat Phillips's pantomimes: Babes in the Woods (1918), Cinderella (1919), and Dick Whittington and His Cat (1921). His music was also used for the Fullers' 1920-1921 version of Babes in the Woods, with a libretto by George H. Ward et al, and possibly the company's 1926 pantomime, Puss in Boots, with a libretto by Jim Gerald and Frank Neil. In 1919, Webber also acted as music director for Nat Phillips' Stiffy and Mo Company during its season at Fullers' Theatre, Sydney.
Among Webber's film credits are On Our Selection (1932, as composer), Strike Me Lucky (1934, as composer/music director), and The Broken Melody (1938, as music director).
