This year's proceeds go to the youth of SMSA. Cloudcroft High School's award-winning Culinary Program will again provide the dinner.

Mission Statement

The Cloudcroft Light Opera Company (CLOC) is an all volunteer. nonprofit 501 (c)3 acting group organized to provide family orientated entertainment to locals and visitors to locals to Cloudcroft, the Sacramento Mountains and the Tularosa Basin through laughter.


CLOC provides opportunities and supports education to create and promote a fun-loving experience for people of all ages. Our impact is measured in the donations we receive from passing the hat at intermission, the world of mouth reviews and the support we receive from our broad base of followers, patrons, sponsors, volunteers, and community members.


CLOC remains committed to providing support to students in Otero county through sustained community relations and educational opportunities. 

Imagination Library

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

 In 1995, Dolly Parton launched an exciting new effort, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, to benefit the children of her home county in East Tennessee. Dolly's vision was to foster a love of reading among her  county’s preschool children and their families by providing them with  the gift of a specially selected book each month.  By mailing high  quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted  children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can  create. Moreover, she could ensure that every child would have books,  regardless of their family’s income. 

CLOC's Involvement

In 2010, CLOC teamed up with Cloudcroft Kiwanis to bring the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to the 88317 zip code. This was a first for New Mexico. Since then, more than 8,500 books have been given to local children.
