The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade:
A New Washington, DC Based Theatre Company
The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade is a new Washington, DC based theatre company.
The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade will be bringing free outdoor theatre to the city, where people can lay out blankets, pack a picnic and enjoy a performance out under the stars. To begin, this summer we will be mounting a production of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It with performances running August 14-18th. The performances will be held nightly at 8 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown – 1041 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for picnicking and relaxing pre-performance. For additional information, please check our website.
The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade is a new company that will be bringing free outdoor productions of the works of William Shakespeare to DC each summer. DC has so many great free outdoor summer activities like Screen on the Green and Jazz in the Sculpture Garden, but the city doesn’t really have an outdoor theatre option right now.
The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade founders, Heather Cipu (Artistic Director) and Alexis Truitt (Managing Director) have both been working in the DC theatre community for many years. They have done everything from acting, to producing, directing, costumes, props, lights, sound and producing. Starting a company together has been a dream of theirs for a while and they are both extremely excited to have that dream become a reality.
