Frequently Asked Questions


We would like to welcome you to the Cloudcroft Light Opera Company’s Frequently Asked Questions page. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit community theatre company. As an introduction to our group, we offer answers to some frequently asked questions concerning our activities.



  • Is a ticket required to attend a CLOC performance?


A: Yes and no. CLOC melodramas are free. However, we do pass a hat at intermission for donations. For CLOC murder mysteries tickets are required. The ticket prices are usually no more than $20 per person.



  • How do I volunteer for CLOC?



We are always looking for people to help either on stage or behind the scenes. The best way to become a part is to come to a monthly meeting and join the company.



  • Do you accept play submissions?



No. We do not accept unsolicited play submissions.


  • How do I find out about auditions?



We very rarely have general auditions. Community-specific auditions for community members are announced on our webpage and our social media sites. We generally do not actively seek professional actors for our productions.



  • Can CLOC come work with my community organization?


If you are interested in working with us for a community event, please email us at cloudcroftlightoperaco@gmail.com. CLOC is committed to working with organizations in the Sacramento Mountains and Tularosa Basin area dedicated to promoting education, the arts or tourism.


  • Does CLOC ever tour their productions?


Since our “actors” are volunteers living in the Cloudcroft area, touring our productions is not an option.



PURCHASING A TICKET


  • Where can I find a performance schedule?


All upcoming and currently playing productions, their performance dates, location(s), and scheduled start time(s) can be found on our website or on our Facebook page.


  • What are your ticket prices?



Ticket prices vary for our productions. CLOC melodramas are free. However, we do pass a hat at intermission for donations. For CLOC murder mysteries tickets are required. The ticket prices are usually no more than $20 per person. Please see the specific show’s webpage for more information.


  • What does “pass the hat” mean?



Pass the hat” means you pay whatever you feel you can financially afford. If you want to come to a melodrama and pay nothing that is completely acceptable.


  • Where do the funds collected go?


Acting lessons! Not really. CLOC provides five $500 scholarships each year to seniors from Cloudcroft, Tularosa or Alamogordo High Schools. We are also involved in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library for children living in the 88317 zip code. To see more about this program visit the Imagination Library webpage (www.imaginationlibrary.com). Additionally, each year CLOC performs a murder mystery to benefit a Cloudcroft Schools organization. 



ATTENDING A MELODRAMA


  • Do you provide accommodations for patrons with physical challenges?


We make every effort to accommodate the needs of every patron and assist those patrons with physical challenges with getting into our pavilion facility. If you have specific needs when arriving for a melodrama, please alert the Welcome Committee and we will attempt to accommodate you as best we can.



  • Do you have assisted listening devices available?


Due to the set up of the open-air pavilion assisted listening devices are not available. If you have concerns regarding your enjoyment of the performance please alert the Welcome Committee and we will attempt to accommodate you as best we can.



  • When do you start seating people?


All of our melodrama seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests can “reserve” their own seats beginning at 6:30 on performance nights. We do encourage fans to arrive approximately 30-45 minutes prior to our 7:30 start time to ensure they receive a seat under the pavilion – and near the heaters.



  • Can I be seated if I am late?


We try our best to accommodate everyone who wishes to see the performance. However, we cannot promise a seat to anyone who arrives late. One side of the Pavilion is open to allow overflow seating on the lawn, so our shows are never really “sold out.”



  • Do you serve concessions and/or alcohol at your performances?


We have a concession stand called the Rubber Chicken that sells sodas, popcorn and candy for $1 each. Some nights cheese nachos are available for $3 per plate. Alcohol is prohibited on Village property.



  • Can I take pictures of and/or record a performance?


Yes. Recording devices are allowed at all our productions.



  • Does CLOC have a physical office?


No. Our mailing address is: PO Box 1166, Cloudcroft, NM 88317-1166.



  • Do you have a mailing list or newsletter that I can subscribe to?


At this time, the answer is no. However, we are looking into the possibility of making this an option. If you would like to receive information on CLOC until we have our mailing list available we recommend you “like” our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cloudcroftlightoperaco to stay up to date on our events.



  • I cannot find the answer to my question!


There might not be an answer, but if you like please contact us at cloudcroftlightoperaco@gmail.com or info@cloudcrofttheatre.com and we will be more than happy to give you some kind of answer.
