History of Penn LSLOC

The Law School Light Opera Company traces its origins to 1971, when two law professors formed an octet, composed of members of the Law School community, to sing carols in the Great Hall. The activity quickly grew in scale, and in 1977, students organized their first musical production, Trial By Jury. The show was presented once in the historic Silverman Great Hall, and once at Houston Hall. Subsequent productions continued to grow in size, and often featured operettas by Gilbert and Sullivan complete with a live orchestra.

In the early 90’s, the club began to move deeper into musical theater and took on more traditional comedic musicals as part of its repertoire. The group performed classics such as Into the Woods, Chicago, and Pippin. In 2012, the group performed the extremely well received comedy Intervention, written and produced by one of the club’s own members. Last year, the LSLOC presented a superb production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
