The Starlite Room at Savoy
The Starlite Room at Savoy is the perfect BYOV for small cast shows, storytellers, stand-up comedy, magic, and solo or duet musical acts. This year-round Cabaret space has played host to many of Orlando’s top musical acts and comedians who enjoy the up close and personal intimacy of this 75 – seat venue situated within Savoy, Orlando, which is a fully operational bar/nightclub complex.

Be advised the stage is smallish at 8 feet wide by (up to) 10 feet deep. There are no wings however props can be hidden behind a the multi-paneled black up stage backdrop and easily accessed when needed. The backdrop my be moved forward to reduce stage size and add more back stage space if needed. There is minimal storage and all entrances and exits are from stage right only or through the house down the center aisle.
The lighting is limited to basic lights up and lights down general illumination. However there is a mirror ball suspended in the room which may be utilized. The per-performance fee is not inclusive of a tech operator. The house manager will be happy to accommodate lights up and down at start and finish of show but for more involved cues you will have the option of providing your own tech who may have access to our basic booth or you may hire a tech from Savoy at an additional charge of $40 per call time. The room does have a ceiling mounted projector and there is an on stage screen that pulls down and you can run the projector off your laptop however please be aware that the stage can not be illuminated while the projection is being displayed as it washes out the screen.
If video projection is independent of stage action the room can accommodate your video. Our electronic keyboard with 88 weighted keys and sustain pedal and bench is available for your use, as well as one hard-wired microphone and wireless hand-held microphone should you care to use them.
