Founder | Director | Musical Director | Accompanist | Producer

Diane created and founded CCLO in 1987. After creating and directing/musical directing the Drama Camp at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center, (which remains in operation today!), Diane recognized the need to provide healthy and comprehensive performing arts training for young people in the community on a larger and more developed level. 30 years later, CCLO continues to evolve!
