Savoy Theatre - What's On
The Savoy Theatre is located on Savoy Court in London's West End. It opened on 10 October 1881 and was built by Richard D'Oyly Carte on the site of the old Savoy Palace in as a showcase for the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, which became known as the Savoy Operas as a result. Later, the Savoy Hotel was built next to it.
The Savoy Theatre's auditorium was ravaged by fire in 1990 but was triumphantly recreated under the guidance of the theatre's late chairman, Sir Hugh Wontner, and the distinguished architect, Sir William Whitfield.
The Savoy Theatre re-opened on 19th July, 1993 in the presence of HRH The Princess of Wales with a Royal Gala performed by English National Ballet. Olivier Award-winning musical Dreamgirls plays to packed-out audiences at London’s Savoy Theatre. No video cameras or recording devices. No smoking.
No babes in arms. Young children are admitted but not encouraged unless the parent is confident that the child is old enough to be attentive to the performance and not a distraction for other members of the audience. Everyone must have a valid ticket and occupy a seat. Accompanying adults will be asked to remove any noisy infants.
