The Savoy Theatre is a performance venue in Adcockvale, Port Elizabeth.

Also known as the Savoy Theatre and Conference Centre

It was designed and built by members of the Port Elizabeth Gilbert & Sullivan Society in the 1960s, primarily as a rehearsal venue. At that time, since the Society's establishment in 1932, most productions were staged at the Port Elizabeth Opera House and the Savoy stage was made to the same size as the PE Opera House stage. Since the early 2000s most productions have been staged at the Savoy Theatre with ongoing improvements being made such as the construction of an Orchestra Pit in 2011 and major renovations to the bar and entertainment areas.
