The Stanford Savoyards are pleased to announce our Spring show, Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride. Modernized in the signature Stanford Savoyards style, this production directed by Doreen Finkelstein and Greg Anderson, recreates a contemporary English Village caught in fandom fever! Are you a Whovian or a Trekkie? SciFi allusions and parodies of posturing will abound as Gilbert & Sullivan’s satire of Victorian aestheticism meets today’s trendy cosplay!
