The College Light Opera Company (CLOC) is non-profit theatre organization located down in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. For over 50 years, CLOC has provided hundreds of college-age students from around the country with a unique educational opportunity to learn from leading professionals and practice their craft in a challenging but supportive environment.
Each summer, CLOC invites 75 of our nation's most promising theatre artists to be in residence in Falmouth for 11 intense weeks of production. These students become members in our Vocal Company, Orchestra, Design and Production Team, Music Staff, and Business Staff. The result is 9 fully produced musicals and operettas performed at the Highfield Theatre. These productions are considered to be 9 of the best theatre productions on Cape Cod each year.
Previous CLOC Alumni have gone on to work around the world on Broadway, Off-Broadway, television/film, professional opera companies, cruise lines, and more. CLOC prepares their students with the skill set to be successful artists in any professional setting.
CLOC is operated by a Board of Trustees, Executive Director/Artistic Director Mark Pearson, Associate Artistic Director Beth Burrier and General Manager Deanna Dziedzina Together with their summer company each year, CLOC has become an integral part of our local and national arts landscape.
