David Budden, Baritone
David is featured as “Francesco’ in The Gondoliers
David has sung in choirs for as long as he can remember. He caught the theatre ‘bug’ when he was cast as “Pish-Tush” in The Mikado during his high school years.
For many years he lived in denial, pretending to pursue a career as a high school Science teacher, trying to hide his particular affinity for Gilbert and Sullivan. In the meantime, David has worked behind the scenes on many productions for the school he teaches at including Beauty and The Beast, The Pirates of Penzance and Les Misérables.
Finally done with living vicariously through his students, David has returned to the stage, vowing to become famous before his students do!

The Savoy Arts Company Incorporated has been producing shows since 1985, specialising in the operettas of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. To better reflect its primary artistic objective, commencing from 2014, the company will be performing as Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney. Our performing group has provided excellent training in all aspects of stagecraft for performers who have made a career in opera and musical theatre. The Ensemble style of our productions not only provides the chorus with experience in singing with an orchestra, but also provides ample opportunity to learn and develop skills in characterisation and stagecraft.
