    If you would like to participate in the production staff or crew,
    please let us know by phone or email. The Stanford Savoyards is a
    Volunteer Student Organization at Stanford University. Cast members
    will be expected to contribute time to the mounting of the production
    (sets, costumes, marketing, sales, etc.) in addition to rehearsal and
    performance time.

    PLOT SUMMARY:
    Our two Gondolier heroes, Marco and Giuseppe, have it all.  They are
    incredibly handsome, sing magnificently, have beautiful brides… and of
    course get to sing in boats.  Most importantly one of them is even the
    King of Barataria!  But which one is it, Marco or Giuseppe?  Everyone
    wants to know!

    The Duke of Plaza Toro wants to know because his family's fortune
    depends upon him!

    The Grand Inquisitor wants to know because his confusion must be
    resolved by him!

    Beautiful Casilda wants to know because she must marry him (and won't
    his current wife be surprised)!

    Come join the fun as they sing and dance their way from the Piazettas
    of Italy to the Courts of Barataria, solving the mystery without
    missing a beat of Gilbert and Sullivan's wonderful score.  The
    Gondoliers features a full orchestra, a full chorus, and is fully
    entertaining.
