Washington, DC, June 23, 2016- The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade (FGC), a Washington, DC based theatre company, is bringing back free outdoor theatre to the city for its fourth year.

Performances will be held nightly at 8 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown (1041 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007). Audience members will be able to lay out blankets, pack a picnic and enjoy a free performance out under the stars. In case of inclement weather the show will be performed indoors in the church Sanctuary. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for picnicking and relaxing pre-performance. Some concessions and fun FGC swag will be available for sale on site. For additional information, please visit our website: http://www.fgcitizens.org. (more…)
