Outdoor Summer Theater with FGC

Click on the image above to see more pictures of our production from last year.

The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade (FGC) is the resident theater company of the Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown. The company's mission is to provide accessible theater for everyone, and we do so by providing free outdoor productions of the works of William Shakespeare each summer. DC has so many great free outdoor summer activities like Screen on the Green and Jazz in the Sculpture Garden. We are bringing free outdoor theater to the city--where people can lay out blankets, pack a picnic and enjoy a performance out under the stars!

This summer in its second season, FGC will be mounting a production of William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" with performances running for two weeks June 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, and 28, 2014. The performances will be held nightly at 8 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown (1041 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007), doors will open at 7 p.m. for picnicking and relaxing pre-performance.
