Take six highly seasoned...and critically acclaimed...Savoyards,

of sarcasm, a heaping helping of humor, an earful of education,
then throw them all into a musical blender...and waddaya get? SAVOY
EXPRESS, the Bay Area's most delightful new addition to the performing
These six energetic, attractive performers, who also just happen
to be members of internationally acclaimed G&S repertory company,
Lamplighters Music Theatre, as well as Stanford Savoyards and Lyric
Theatre of San Jose, are taking Gilbert & Sullivan to new heights
with instantly accessible, revue-style potpourris that capture the
wit, whimsy and essence of that "Dynamic Duo" of the Victorian era,
Sir William S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan.
Presenting hilites from the big three perennial favorites,
The Mikado, Pirates of Penzance, and HMS Pinafore, SAVOY EXPRESS
also brings to life selections from The Gondoliers, Iolanthe, Princess
Ida, Ruddygore, Trial by Jury, Yeomen of the Guard, and much more!
Its premiere offering, "Gilbert & Sullivan: Aspects of Love," wends
its merry way through the "many, various ways" of love
found in the repertoire: lost love; newfound love; unrequieted love;
unabashed love...even not even a clue love! SAVOY EXPRESS'
other offering, "The Hit List," revives many all-time favorites
of the G&S canon: Three Little Maids, I Am the Captain of the Pinafore,
Tit-Willow, My Name is John Wellington Wells, and more!
Available in one-hour and two-hour versions, these delightful,
instructive programs, complete with sparkling choreography, and
presented with piano accompaniment and a minimum of sets, costumes
and props, are wonderfully easy to produce and are sure to delight
your season subscribers! Gilbert & Sullivan has always been a treat
for all ages...and as the Mikado himself says:
"Nothing could possibly be more satisfactory!"
