Producing the topsy-turvy musical comedies of
Sir William S. Gilbert & Sir Arthur S. Sullivan since 1963
This amazing homegrown theatre troupe was born in 1963, out of love for that perfect combination of W. S. Gilbert's incisive satire and Arthur Sullivan's sparkling music.
The Savoyards take their name from London's Savoy Theatre, where many of the Gilbert and Sullivan (G&S) operettas were first performed. Its charter members (many from Duke) included academics and "townies" alike. The Durham Savoyards are a 501(c)(3) corporation.
