The Savoy Company
The Savoy Company Philadelphia’s internationally award-winning and 501(c)(3) non-profit educational musical theater organization was formed in 1901 and remains the oldest amateur theater company in the world dedicated to performing the works of Gilbert and Sullivan (G&S). The classic and timeless works of G&S are the most performed theater works throughout the world save for Shakespeare. Savoy’s shows are family friendly and attract audience members of all ages. Savoy members volunteer their time and talents – on stage, singing and dancing, and backstage, building the set and props – to produce one of the thirteen existing G&S operas each year.
G&S works include blockbusters (and songs): H.M.S. Pinafore (“I’m Called Little Buttercup”), The Mikado (“I’ve Got a Little List”), and The Pirates of Penzance (“I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General”).
Annual performances are held at The Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Philadelphia, PA & at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA.
