FORTY YEARS OF GILBERT & SULLIVAN ... This spring, the operetta-performing troupe known as the Stanford Savoyards celebrates the group's 40th year of putting on Gilbert & Sullivan shows on campus. The group is planning a reunion reception at Stanford on the afternoon of Saturday, May 11, and is sending out the call to all Savoyards past and present to attend. Photos, memorabilia and stories are welcome. Also in May, the troupe is performing "The Sorcerer," the G&S tale of love potions and mismatched couples. After doing "H.M.S. Pinafore" set in the world of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," the performers are placing "The Sorcerer" in "a magical fantasyland." Shows are in Dinkelspiel Auditorium at 8 p.m. on May 10 and 11 and at 2 p.m. May 12; tickets are $20 general, $15 for seniors and $10 for students.
