An interview with Savoyards Musical Theatre Company communications manager Sherryl-Lee Secomb.
Who can apply to be in Savoyards shows?
“Anyone over the age of 16 years old”
What is it that makes Savoyards special?
“[Savoyards is] inclusive, with the ability to balance excellence and fun.”
What advice would you give to a performer interested in being involved with Savoyards?
“Be prepared to work hard, learn from everyone and have fun. We work as a team so everyone is expected to be responsible for their own performance and look out for their fellow performers.”
Share a highlight of your time with Savoyards.
“Performing continuously for over 50 years, Savoyards used to be a touring company. Memories of the challenges of travelling to a theatre somewhere in South East Queensland or Northern NSW, arriving in the morning, bumping in a show, performing that night, then bumping out the next day reminds us to count our blessings today.”
What does Savoyards strive to achieve?
” A great night at the theatre”
