Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert & Sullivan Players

Purpose Statement

Founded in 1956, the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert & Sullivan Players is an independent, nonprofit student theater group dedicated to performing the comic operas of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. HRG&SP remains one of the great theatrical traditions at Harvard, presenting one production each semester in Radcliffe's historic Agassiz Theatre. Our fall shows are the most attended, the highest-budgeted, and the largest cast-crew-and-orchestra involved productions on campus. We are widely recognized as one of the leading Gilbert and Sullivan troupes in New England and are primarily supported by our wide circle of patrons throughout the Boston area. While we are an undergraduate organization, our productions are open to anyone qualified by audition, and our casts, orchestras, and crews often include students in Harvard''s graduate and professional schools, students from other universities and conservatories, the occasional alum, and members of the Boston community in general. Each production offers opportunities for singers, actors, pit musicians, conductors, directors, choreographers, designers, and technicians to collaborate on a professional-quality production.
