CHICO'S ANGELS Bring The Heat To Palm Springs In Their Big Debut Perfomance At Oscars In The Desert
VIVA LAS CHICAS is a flashback and flashforward variety show, featuring the Angels performing sketches and beloved musical numbers. "The combined talents of these three Angels will capture the audience and take them on a tour across the border they will not soon forget!" Chico's Angels are three beautiful and comedic Latina drag queens: Kay Sedia, Chita Parol & Frieda Laye - who work for pennies for their unseen boss, but are now moonlighting as sexy cabaret stars! Think of the 70s series, Charlie's Angels meets 70s TV Variety Hour (like Donny & Marie or The Brady Bunch Variety Hour) starring a Latino Three Stooges in drag. These three Latina "heavenly sex goddesses" have been an underground cult hit in Los Angeles with for the last 14 years. They have also produced mini-episodes and music videos. The mini-episode titled "24ish" has toured the country in over twenty film festivals and was nominated for best short in the San Francisco GLBT Film Festival, Frameline34. Chico's Angels have also been nominated for a Weho Award.
ABOUT THE ANGELS:
Chita Parol: She was born in East Los Angeles, California as a first generation Mexican/American. As the smart one, and angry about it, Chita keeps focused on the job, except for those small moments, far and in between, where she gets to shine. She never seems to get the guy, mainly due to her anger management issues. She's working on that, and getting better. Now she only hates everyone just a little bit. Chita fancies herself the pretty one.
Frieda Laye: Frieda was born in what is known as La Frontera de Chihuahua, Ciudad Juarez Mexico, or as it's come to be known across the border, J-Town. Frieda was left under the door mat of a convent, Las Hermanas de la Madre Guadalupe de los Chavos. She realized that her destiny was to be one of Chico's Angels and that she was to use her special abilities to fight crime as a private investigator. ...and to supplement her income as a private dancer as well. Frieda is proud to be one of Chico's Angels, and while she may not have the brightest halo, it is the blondest.
