Local Crowdfund: Worcester County Light Opera Company

Print More

As part of ongoing efforts to maintain their playhouse building, and raise money to improve their pipes — the plumbing ones; their voices, we can report, are in fine form — the many folks who comprise Worcester County Light Opera Company will be producing, appropriately enough, seven performances of the Tony Award-winning musical “Urinetown.”

WCLOC will put on seven June shows of the crowd favorite "Urinetown" to help fund plumbing repairs at Grandview Playhouse.

WCLOC will put on seven June shows of the crowd favorite “Urinetown” to help fund plumbing repairs at Grandview Playhouse.

Evolving from light opera to musical theater, WCLOC is in its 80th year as a nonprofit theater company and is the oldest live theater troupe in Worcester. It seeks $20,000 to perform plumbing upgrades to their Grandview Playhouse at 21 Grandview Ave. The group started a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $5,000 but had raised only $175 after several weeks.

According to Lenny McGuire, music director for WCLOC’s “Urinetown” production, the company has until June 29 to raise the remainder of the money.
