What's New With The Arc Fresno/Madera?

The Arc Presents “Grease”









On Friday August 28, 2015 the LAC Drama Group of The Arc of Fresno/Madera Counties put on the popular musical “Grease” at the Loewen Achievement Center.   After months of practicing lines, learning numerous dances, and getting familiar with stage directions, a large group of friends and family members gathered to enjoy the show.  The cast and crew did an amazing job, and everyone had a wonderful time as the cast performed songs like: Greased Lightnin’, Summer Nights, You Are The One I Want, Beauty School Drop-Out, Born To Hand Jive and more memorable, good-time tunes.

We would like to thank everyone that came out to support those involved in the production of this timeless musical!
