Five Things You Need to Know Today: July 27
Check out a presentation from the Sudbury Savoyards.
1. THEATER: Sudbury Savoyards presents The Savoy Club
The Sudbury Savoyards, known for producing Gilbert & Sullivan operettas on a grand scale in the winter and a smaller scale comedy in the summer months, is taking a trip back to their past to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Savoy Club. Created by Sudbury Savoyard veteran David Larrick, who will serve as Master of Ceremonies, The Savoy Club was originally presented in 2002 as a means to raise additional funds for their benefactor, World Hunger Relief.
Including a nod to the company’s Gilbert & Sullivan roots, the seldom-performed one-act operetta “Cox and Box” will also be presented, directed by Kathy Lague of Sudbury and Steve Malionek of Salem, and featuring often-seen Savoyard members Brad Amidon of Arlington, Tom Frates of Lexington, and Tony Parkes of Billerica in the three character roles.
These two evenings are packed full with members of the Savoyards displaying their talents outside of the usual program including Comedy, Folk Music, Classical Piano, Chamber Music, Barbershop, the Shepherd’s Pie Dixieland Band, a quiz to test your knowledge of esoteric musical arcana, and much more.
The Savoy Club will take place in Hawes Hall of the Sudbury United Methodist Church, 251 Old Sudbury Road, Route 27, in Sudbury Center, at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door with concessions available, parking, and handicapped accessibility.
