Q: Does my child need to audition for CLO Summer Camps?

A: Every child registered in our Summer Camps will be cast in the production. The campers audition for roles during the first few days of camp. The directors give each child a special part in the show, assuring that every student feels like a star.

Q: We have a big family. How many tickets will each child receive for performances?

A: Pittsburgh CLO Academy must adhere to Fire Code and Occupancy limits set forth by the City of Pittsburgh. Ticket allotments are based on the number of performers in each camp to assure safe and comfortable seating in the Charles Gray Auditorium. Usually, each performer receives 2-4 tickets.

Q: Will I need to buy costumes?

A: You do not have to buy a costume unless you want to. Costumes are created out of simple things that you probably already have, can easily obtain or we will provide.
