A Philadelphia tradition supporting local charitable organizations since its founding in 1901, The Savoy Company is a 501(c) (3) non-profit educational organization. It is the oldest amateur theater company in the world dedicated solely to the production of the 13 surviving immortal operas of Gilbert and Sullivan.
In 2016 The Savoy Company will perform Gilbert and Sullivanís dazzling The Pirates of Penzance. Taking the Delaware Valley by storm, this much-beloved comic opera is filled with waggish pirates, blundering policemen, ludicrous adventures, and the most brilliant paradox, all accompanied by Gilbertís pin-sharp wit and Sullivanís scintillating score filled with beautiful melodies and toe-tapping tunes. The show will be fully staged and feature a gorgeous, professionally-designed set, beautiful costumes, and a professional orchestra.
We'll be back there again next year for H.M.S. Pinafore, but in the meantime don't miss your chance to see
The Pirates of Penzance under the stars on stage of the Open Air Theatre, amid the tranquil beauty of Longwood Gardens
