About the Stanford Savoyards

Stanford's Premiere Light Opera and Lyric Theater Organization

The Stanford Savoyards is a student-run theatre company open to the public for cast and crew. We have proudly been presenting the light operas of Gilbert and Sullivan on the Stanford University campus since 1973. Typically the Stanford Savoyards produce two fully-staged operettas with orchestra per season.

We are affiliated with the Associated Students of Stanford University. Our membership has included students, faculty, staff and alumni of Stanford from freshmen up to the President! We also draw from the surrounding community. We encourage everyone to try out for our shows or to contribute their artistic, technical, or organizational talents to our theatrical exploits.

The Stanford Savoyards have fostered numerous professional actors, singers, and theatre professionals now working throughout the Bay Area and beyond. We promote a friendly work environment conducive to learning new skills, as well as honing skills you already possess.

We are proud to be one of the 45 amateur groups in the United States dedicated primarily to presenting the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Other colleges and universities with companies that perform Gilbert and Sullivan almost exclusively include Yale, Harvard, MIT, University of Michigan, Brown, and Rice.
