My husband and I began going to CLOC productions in the early 1970s. In those days, all the performers were from Oberlin College, and the shows were mainly Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. The productions were enthusiastic and fun, but definitely on the level of good college productions, with only a few really strong performers. Fast forward to six or seven... More

We have 3 seasons of season tickets and these productions get us acquainted with high quality long running broadway shows of the older variety. These a wonderful well rehearsed weekly productions.

Full Disclosure: I was a member of the Company in the summer of 1971, and the producers are long-time friends. I sat in the house for the first time this year, and I can say honestly that the experience was great! CLOC is a very professional company, and the soloists were excellent. Definitely recommended for a night of musical theater.... More

our daughter got a lead role......but truly, both she and the entire production were excellent. Can't imagine a visit to the Cape without taking in a show while there.

This was our first visit to CLOC and we loved it.. The young cast was incredibly talented and put on a fabulous show. The orchestra and music were quite professional and the ticket price was a good deal for the quality show that we saw. The theatre is small but air conditioning kept it comfortable. Overall this was a great... More

CLOC put on great musical productions - wonderful college kids in the cast and orchestra, great selection of shows. We also love that it's a small theater and they don't use amplification. The setting is also lovely with a nice outdoor courtyard at intermission. We go with the whole family every year and it is a highlight of our summer.

The cast were professional quality. The pit orchestra was professional quality. And yet, they are college students, so the level of intensity and enthusiasm is of MORE than professional quality! The sets were devastatingly good....

I have been going to CLOC...locally referred to as simply "Highfield" (as in "what's playing at Highfield"), for decades. I went as a child and now go with my own children and still with my mother. The kids WILL put down their IPods and Playstations controllers for a couiple of hours..and they will have a good time...believe me. The theater... More
