Madonna Learning Center (MLC)
For the 6th year in a row, GPAC has graciously been the home for the MLC Christmas Play. This year the students and adults provided the “Light” to share with everyone for this Holiday Season. With dance pieces from, “O Holy Night” , “This Little Light of Mine”, to Justin Timberlake’s, “Can’t Stop the Feeling”. The Show was a constant reminder of how unique, and remarkable the students and staff at MLC truly are.
One of the trainees in the Adult Program, told her Mother after one of the performances, “Mom, I’m just so happy! I love my life, and I never want to leave Madonna!”
Get ready for next year, as Madonna Learning Center prepares for their 50th Anniversary Show. It’ll surely be one you won’t want to miss.
