No community musical organization in history, from Handel’s time to the present, has survived without the financial support of others. The Savoy Society of Ottawa is no exception. We increasingly rely upon the generous donations of sponsors and donors.
Please consider a gift to Savoy to enable us to carry on with our rich tradition of community service.

Our membership is drawn from all walks of life in the National Capital Region. For those who wish to perform, our casts are selected through open auditions each year, and are usually in the range of 40 people. For those interested in offstage roles, some 150 people are required each year to fill all the back stage positions necessary to present the show. Except for directors and a professional orchestra, all cast and back stage members are volunteers.
JOIN THE OTHERS AND BECOME A MEMBER OF THE SAVOY SOCIETY OF OTTAWA. SAVOY IS PLANNING GREAT THINGS FOR THEIR FUTURE.
It continues to be a society which enables people in the community to experience, learn and participate in all aspects of classic musical theatre-both on and off the stage.
Your membership will entitle you to the following:
- A voting interest on Society Concerns
- Invitation to Society Events
- A donation tax receipt for the full amount
Memberships are for the fiscal year (June 1st – May 31st)

For those interested in an offstage role there are a wide variety of possibilities, including costumes, make-up, hair, props, Green Room, set construction, stage crew, lighting, sound, front of house, events, and publicity. Coordinators for each of these areas begin assembling their teams in the fall. Some volunteers begin work early, with most involved in the month before the show opens. The set construction crew usually begins work in December or early January
For most volunteers, experience is an asset, but not necessary – in most cases, the experienced people can help new people learn what to do.
Offstage members are welcome at rehearsals, and are encouraged to come out to see how the show is developing and to meet with the cast members.
If you are interest in volunteering, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
