Since 1901, The Savoy Company has brought together a wide range of people from across the Greater Philadelphia area to have fun and to perform the works of Gilbert and Sullivan (G&S).
As the oldest amateur theatre company in the world dedicated to performing the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, Savoy is steeped in history and tradition, while still making time for fun and social gatherings. Savoy members often make lifelong friends (or even find future spouses) within The Company, and enjoy socializing with each other all year long. Indeed, many of our alums become permanent supporters.
Savoy has long been known for its large chorus and backstage crew, and has performed on professional stages, employing professional orchestras, for 115 years and counting. The Company’s volunteer cast has included Hollywood film star Nelson Eddy, Metropolitan Opera soprano Margaret Harshaw, Wagnerian bass-baritone James Pease and Broadway star Wilbur Evans.
