Went to the first night of "The Gondoliers." Very professional in every way: performance, sets, costumes. Intimate 300+ seat theatre with every seat a good seat-no obstructions. Cast performed without amplification and did a wonderful job. As a G&S stalwart, this company did not disappoint.

Best summer stock theater you will see on Cape Cod. 32 singers and dancer (all students of theater) performing a new musical every week. Amazing they can do it, and give an outstanding performance every week. A live 20 piece orchestra really adds to the experience. They have not been around for over 47 years for nothing. Do not miss.

During the summer the College Light Opera Company offers repertory presentations of Gilbert and Sullivan, operettas, and musicals. The talented players come from schools all over the country. Qver the years the sets and costumes have had their ups and downs, but even their downs are not bad and their ups are very good. The orchestra is about 18 players... More

We typically attend one performance a summer at CLOC. This time we selected West Side Story with its poignant love story. The actors did a fabulous job as always - Riff and Maria were particularly good. Bernardo sounded a bit like he was using an accent out of eastern Europe. As noted in the CC Times Review the orchestra at... More

This company, made up of college students recruited nationwide, offers 9 musicals in 9 weeks each summer. The quality of the performances is excellent! What an amazing feat! And this is the 41st year that this has been offered in Falmouth!

Seven family members ranging in age from 13-70 had a wonderful time at the company's production of the HMS Pinafore. The performers did a great job and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. If we were residents, I would get season tickets!

This 40-year young summer music theater attracts the cream of the crop among rising young performers. Each summer, for 9 weeks, they produce a different show each week with a full orchestra. We saw Gilbert & Sullivan's "HMS Pinafore" and truly -- no lie! -- enjoyed it more than many NYC Broadway shows we've seen. Tickets are modestly priced and... More

We saw Les Miserables at the College Light Opera Company. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The cast of young college student performers was amazing-- really strong, beautiful voices. The acting, orchestra, set design, costumes, and direction were all first rate and, frankly, much better than we were expecting from what we thought would be an amateur summer stock company... More

This is my third year with season tickets. Last night was "White Horse Inn". A thoroughly enjoyable musical which was very well done. It looks like another great season. Too bad the venue can't be improved. The seating is like a middle school auditorium in the 1950's. Horrible! Falmouth should do better......
