Description
Historic Savannah Theatre Musical Productions Photos (10)

The Savannah Theatre opened its doors in 1818 with performances of 'The Soldier's Daughter' and 'Raising the Wind' and hosts a wide array of musical productions that come to the Savannah area. This is one of the country's oldest operating theatres and is located in the Chippewa Square area of Savannah, Georgia.

About the Theatre
The theatre was designed by William Jay, who also designed the Telfair Mansion in Savannah, which belonged to Alexander Telfair. William Jay is also known for having designed and built the Owens-Thomas House which, along with the Telfair Mansion, are both now National Historic Landmarks. Both of these wonderfully preserved locations also currently house museums that focus on the era in which they were built.

The theatre has undergone a few different renovations, including a conversion to its present-day Art Deco style which was as a result of the 1948 fire. It is versitile and has served as both a movie theatre and a live performance venue over the years. The first renovation this theatre underwent was due to a hurricane on August 31, 1898. The hurricane tore sections of the roof off and left severe damage to the structure of the building and flooded the auditorium.

This historic and beautiful theatre resides in the heart of the Savannah Historic District and is located just a short distance from other notable historic sites in the city. Being in the center of the downtown Savannah area, guests can find so many different attractions and tourist locations within walking distance to the theatre, providing a wonderful experience when visiting this beautiful city.

Notable Performers
Just a few of the stars that have performed at the Savannah Theatre include  Otis Skinner, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Lillian Russell, and W.C. Fields. Edwin Booth, who was the brother of the infamous assassin of President Abraham Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth, was also a performer that worked this wonderful theatre. Booth performed a range of Shakespearean roles such as 'Hamlet,' 'Iago,' and 'King Lear.' One of the most notable performances to have taken place in the Historic Savannah Theatre was baseball star Ty Cobb in his role of 'The College Widow' in 1911. Located in the theatre lobby are several newspaper articles, artifacts, and photographs on display to detail the illustrious history of the theatre and how it came to be the beautiful building we see today!

"This might have been the highlight of the trip."
This might have been the highlight of the trip. We debated about going back the next night when our ghost tour was cancelled. We loved being greeted by the cast at the end--sort of like a reception line.

"This IS a must if you visit Savannah."
This is a must if you visit savannah. We were not expecting that level of professional musical performers. They were all very talented and provided a show with something for all music lovers. The performers made sure to connect with the audience. Big smiles and truly seemed to be enjoying performing.

"This is entertainment at its very best."
The savannah theatre never disappoints! My husband and myself travel to savannah every few years and i truly believe that one of reasons we keep coming back is the savannah theatre. The shows are absolutely amazing and the cast is outstanding. They all are such great talents. I'm sure if they didn't love savannah, as we do, they would be performing on broadway. This is entertainment at its very best. I made our reservations through vacationsmadeeasy.Com and they were very professional. They sent emails to remind you about the time of the show and not to forget your tickets. All the way around it was a wonderful experience.
