FCLO Music Theatre, also known as Fullerton Civic Light Opera (FCLO), today announced that as of July 1, 2017, the company will focus solely on the John Raitt Awards for Youth program (JRAY).
This shift is due to the retirement of co-founders Griff and Jan Duncan, along with Scenic Rentals Manager, Larry Knigge.
Fullerton Civic Light Opera was founded in December of 1971 and produced their first musical “Fiddler on the Roof” in January of 1972. Over the span of 50 years beginning in Northern California, the Duncans produced over 171 total musicals.
FCLO made the decision to no longer produce musicals in 2010, but continued with the theatrical rental portion of the business and the JRAY program. This spring will be the 9th annual JRAY awards ceremony honoring excellence in high school theatre.
“FCLO has held a special place in my heart these past years and I’m very proud of the business we’ve created and how well we’ve served our community. My retirement is bittersweet, as I’m ready for the next stage in my life,” said Griff Duncan, founder of FCLO.
