Light Opera and Theatre Association (CLOTA) was established in 1964 and incorporated
under California state law as a non-profit
institution headquartered in Ridgecrest,
California. Although amateur
theatre groups had existed in the Indian
for many years prior to 1964, CLOTA
was the first community theatre organization committed to producing a select
series of musicals and plays each year.
CLOTA's regular season usually consists of three
productions a year. Typically these include one musical and two non-musicals.
addition, CLOTA puts on
fundraising events, such as dinner theatre and poetry readings
In a belief that live theatre is a
mirror for understanding and an opportunity for sharing the human experience,
Community Light Opera and Theatre
Is committed to providing to the
Greater Indian Wells Valley:
Opportunities to learn and
demonstrate the skills associated with the performing arts;
A place to enjoy the creative
efforts of established and new playwrights and composers;
Artistic experiences in support of
and in partnership with others in the community.
Adopted May 18, 1992
