Rehearsals will begin on October 2 and will be held Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays 7-10pm, and Saturdays 11-2pm. Not every cast member will be called to all rehearsals; a detailed schedule will be provided as soon as possible. Additional rehearsals and work hours will be called during the week before performances (�Tech Week�) for stage load-in and dress rehearsals. This is the week of November 6 and it is crucial that everyone be available then.

ABOUT THE STANFORD SAVOYARDS:
Now in our 32nd year, the Savoyards are a group of Stanford students, alumni and community volunteers who present two fully-staged operettas each year. The music is fun, the people are fun, and the audiences have a great time. As a student organization, we can't offer you any pay, but there's a great party after each and every performance!
ABOUT THE MIKADO:
Raised from lowly tailor to the exalted rank of Lord High Executioner, Ko-Ko is plagued by a terrible quandary: the Mikado has instructed him to produce a head - or forfeit his own. He thinks he�s found a volunteer in Nanki-Poo, a young wandering minstrel who agrees to be executed in one month�s time, if Ko-Ko will let him marry his beautiful young ward Yum-Yum.
But Katisha, an elderly lady of the Mikado�s court, has other plans for Nanki-Poo, and plots to spoil the fun by exposing Nanki-Poo�s secret identity. Of course this is only the beginning of much Gilbert & Sullivan topsy-turvy fun.
The Mikado is the most enduringly popular of all the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas and is an effervescent musical delight. It includes the famous songs Three Little Maids From School, A Wandering Minstrel I, and The Mikado�s Song (Let The Punishment Fit The Crime).
This production is a wonderful opportunity to appear in a fully staged performance of a classic musical entertainment.
