"Let Every Heart Be Filled with Joy" traces the history of the company, beginning with its founding in 1901 by Penn alumnus Alfred Reginald Allen. Featured are posters, programs, and photographs from four representative productions: The Yeomen of the Guard (1908); Utopia Limited, or The Flowers of Progress (1936); The Pirates of Penzance (1967); and H.M.S.
