What is the story of this particular event? It all began inn November 1961, when a group of music enthusiasts gathered on the tiny stage of the Wynnum Municipal Hall. When the curtain rose, the audience that had gathered witnessed the maiden performance of Savoyards Musical Comedy Society. It was a project and the result of a dream in the minds of Olwyn and Jim Foley. The couple felt that the Bayside district needed a theatrical group and called a general so called expression of interest meeting. And it was a successful beginning. Originally, the company was intended to perform only Gilbert and Sullivan shows. The name Savoyards was taken from a company that performed Gilbert and Sullivan for Queen Victoria at the Savoy Theatre in England.
