Pittsburgh CLO Offering Suburbs Trolley, Family Pass This Summer

The Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera (CLO) is offering new services – including trolley service in the suburbs, a family pass, and child care during shows – for families this summer.

To entice families to attend the shows, the CLO is offering several new services and discounts this summer. 


Guests can now board the PCLO Show Shuttle at specific locations in the city’s suburbs. To ride the trolley, PCLO show tickets must be purchased in advance. Guests can then add a trolley ticket for $10 directly through Molly’s Trolleys Pittsburgh. The shuttle will only be offered on select show dates and times during the summer. View the schedule.

Family Pass

For every adult ticket purchased, up to four child tickets can be added for $10 each with a family pass. The passes can be purchased in all price zones for any show date and time of show offered. The family pass will be available for “West Side Story,” “The Music Man” and “Seussical” for children, ages three to 18. For “The Color Purple,” children should be at least 13 years old due to the show’s content.

Child Care Available for Families

PCLO Show Care will enable parents to entrust their children – ages three (fully potty trained) to 12 – to the care of CLO Academy of Musical Theatre Faculty while they take in a show. Limited spaces are available, so show care registration should be completed in advance when purchasing tickets. Show Care will be offered at the Saturday matinee performances of “West Side Story,” “The Color Purple,” and “The Music Man.”
