Applause from our Participants... 

“CCLO is where it all started for me. I was born here. Diane helped to shape my life. She still does! People who haven’t worked with her and with CCLO don’t know what they’re missing!”  ~ Chloe Tucker (6 years with CCLO)

“CCLO made me want to have a career in theatre! Diane never stops working with you and never stops believing in you!” ~ Andrew Chappelle (5 years with CCLO)

“After Disneyland, CCLO is the second happiest place on earth!” ~ Amanda Payton (6 years with CCLO)

"Thank you so much for yet another amazing journey of friendship, love, and sharing. I want to spend EVERY MINUTE here because it's such an amazing place to be yourself! Working with you made me courageous and confident enough to let my emotions out. You have had the biggest impact on me. You have taught me so much. I cannot tell you enough how thankful I am!" ~ Cameron deFaria (2 years with CCLO)

“Diane, thank you for being one of the people in my life who took me seriously and saw me for my gifts and not for my faults. As a kid I was always dismissed, underestimated and judged, but you were one of the people in my life who "saw me" and helped me develop confidence. Theatre was how I found my soul ... you gave me that … and I love you for it. Thank you for sharing your gifts with so many people. You are an angel and a hero, and I hope you know what a difference you make in so many people’s lives.- Jeffrey Todd (5 years with CCLO)

“I always felt comfortable making mistakes, and when I would ask for help, the staff and students were always so nice and so helpful. That’s how I kept growing and improving. That’s one of the MANY reasons I kept coming back! ~ Andrea Nevil (7 years with CCLO)

“CCLO has the ability to blend age groups and skill sets together so everyone ends up sharing the challenge of creating a goal together and helping each other grow no matter what.” - Melissa Becker (9 years with CCLO)

“CCLO is not just a theatre company, it's a family.”  ~ Gabrielle McClinton (5 years with CCLO)

“Nine of my most favorite years were spent with CCLO’s Mainstage Company. Words cannot explain or justify how much I learned about theatre and about myself. Diane is one of the most honest, most informed, most talented directors/musical directors I have ever worked with! No other theatre program even comes close to CCLO!”

~ Jordan Segal (9 years with CCLO)

“CCLO was the best part of growing up!” ~ Brian Jaffe (11 years with CCLO)

“Thank you for everything you have taught me. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for inspiring me. You made me into a performer and helped shape the person I am today. Thank you for the best program ever!” ~ Kiera Bloore (4 years with CCLO)

“Music, dancing, singing, silliness, discipline, joy, camaraderie, love, respect and trust…. a few gifts that came as a result of having in my life.” ~ Meghan Mackenzie (7 years with CCLO)
