"CCLO completely set the groundwork for my love of musical theatre. As a young, restless kid with loads of energy, I needed to express myself most authentically.
I thank Diane Feldman for being a pioneer for young, aspiring dreamers and for helping them make their dreams a reality. CCLO gave me belief in myself and my talents, and I am forever grateful!"
CCLO™ had a glorious and unforgettable run!

COMMITMENT to our participants
It was our Mission to positively affect the lives of our students.
With an emphasis on strengthening self-celebration and awareness, our award-winning company challenged individuals to grow artistically, personally and academically through professional training in a non-competitive, validating, interactive, activated environment where energy, teamwork, honesty, authenticity, and trust were key.
Our distinctive approach and pedagogies enabled us to build powerful ensembles and inspire students, families and staff, alike, to share in creative and innovative processes filled with pride, accomplishment, and joy.
All programs were designed as intermediaries between Educational Theatre and the professional stage.
Our high theatrical standards, belief in the empowering and transformative effects of the theatrical process, and unparalleled commitment to all participants enabled us to achieve our Mission for almost 30 years.
And, we could not be more proud of the everlasting results.
