The Savoy Company Celebrating 123 Years of Philadelphia Theatre!


In 2023 The Savoy Company performed Gilbert and Sullivan’s dazzling The Pirates of Penzance! This much-beloved comic opera was filled with waggish pirates, blundering policemen, ludicrous adventures, and the most brilliant paradox, all accompanied by Gilbert’s pin-sharp wit and Sullivan’s scintillating score. As always, our production featured a gorgeous, professionally-designed set, beautiful costumes, and a professional orchestra!

In late Spring of 2022 The Savoy Company performed Gilbert and Sullivan’s spooky Ruddigore to great acclaim at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre in Philadelphia and at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. The show was fully staged and featured a gorgeous, professionally-designed set, beautiful costumes, and a professional orchestra.
