Founded in 1964, Sinfonicron is student-run on every level of production, from set design and construction to direction, costuming, and administration. Members are drawn from William & Mary students, many of whom belong to one of the company's four parent organizations: our three music fraternities: Delta Omicron, Phi Mu Alpha, and Nu Kappa Epsilon, and the Theater Students’ Association. Sinfonicron produces one show every January on a three year rotating schedule of two Gilbert and Sullivan shows and one non-Gilbert and Sullivan show. Proceeds from the show are given back to these parent groups, who use the funds to support arts endeavors at the College and around the community.
Sinfonicron is not your run-of-the-mill college theater company. Students come back to William & Mary two weeks before the official start of the spring semester, giving up the second half of their winter break to spend 14 days living and breathing Gilbert & Sullivan. Members of the company work from 9am to 9pm every day to mount a truly superlative production in only two weeks. Sinfonicron prides itself not only on contributing to Williamsburg's vibrant arts scene, but also on providing its student participants with invaluable skills, experiences, and relationships that will stay with them for years to come.
