UPDATE: We are offering the ability for any patron to view recordings of our two live streams for a limited time. Click here for more information.
Due to circumstances out of our control with the closing of the library system, the Saturday, March 14 performance of the Mikado will be webcast only.
All other live performances are cancelled.
In lieu of the other scheduled live performances, we are offering ticket holders the opportunity to view an online recording of either the Friday, March 13 cast performance or the Saturday, March 14 cast performance.
Patrons who have not yet purchased tickets but would still like an opportunity to see the show can support the company by buying tickets online; purchasers will receive an email containing a unique, private link to the recording of the selected performance.

This evening is opening night of The Mikado. The Pittsburgh Savoyards have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and recommendations from the CDC very closely. After much deliberation, our production of The Mikado will proceed as planned.
Together with the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, we are taking recommended precautions to help minimize the spread and impact of the virus. These precautions include additional cleaning procedures at each show and requiring staff and volunteers who are ill or may have been exposed to the virus to stay home.
We ask audience members to observe the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control, which include frequent hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and refraining from coming to the theater if you are unwell, have been in contact with someone who is unwell, or have reason to believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
We will offer a live internet streaming option for patrons who do not feel comfortable coming to the theater. In addition, we will be opening our balcony for all shows, and ask that patrons who do decide to see the show in person allow extra seats between other patrons to avoid close proximity. Ticket holders may request access to our live stream by sending confirmation of ticket purchase to information@
Out of an abundance of caution, we will not have our traditional post-show food reception on opening night.
If circumstances change as we continue to monitor the situation day by day, we will post additional updates here.
