Join Savoy of Philadelphia
- Interested in performing Gilbert and Sullivan operettas?
Savoy (http://www.savoy.org/) has begun its annual recruitment process for
the 2002 season. To join Savoy and help continue the tradition we began in
1901 performing the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, please come to one of our
recruitment events, the first of which is this Friday night. If you can't
make it, a series of smaller recruitment events will be held through the end
of the year. Auditions and backstage and production interviews are held in
January. Rehearsals and pre-production begins in late January/early February
for our Spring 2002 production, Princess Ida. Email me if you are
interested and I can send you more information about Savoy, the process of
auditioning, and/or this Friday night's event.
The Savoy Mission Statement
The Savoy Company, a non-profit theatrical organization, promotes community
involvement and educational outreach while supporting locally-based
charitable organizations through an annual production of one of the thirteen
extant works of Gilbert and Sullivan.
Savoy's amateur membership is a diverse group of volunteers drawn from the
Greater Delaware Valley area. Members are committed to developing the
highest quality theatrical production and in so doing, sharing the artistic,
musical and cultural influences of the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. The
Company's 100 year history places it in a unique position within the
community, and offers opportunities for personal growth and community
reinvestment for its members, beneficiaries and audiences.
