Founded in 1946, the Simsbury Light Opera Company (SLOCO) is a community-based group of actors, singers and talented backstage crew dedicated to bringing quality musical entertainment to audiences throughout Connecticut's Farmington Valley. Over the years we have performed all of the major works of Gilbert & Sullivan, as well as other shows such as "The Merry Widow" by Franz Lehar, "Of Thee I Sing" by George and Ira Gershwin and "Sullivan and Gilbert, a la Carte" by Thom Griffin and Ron Luchsinger, a completely original production written in honor of SLOCO’s 60th anniversary in 2005.
