Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) announced today that the award-winning UpBeat! program's holiday show is available for free viewing. The original adaptation of Dr. Seuss The Grinch is posted online at the CFCArts YouTube channel: UpBeat's The Grinch!.

The UpBeat! Musical Theater Troupe is a unique virtual theater experience for teens and adults with varying abilities including Down syndrome, autism, and ADHD.
