Two-time Daytime Emmy nominated actress Shelley Hennig, star of "Teen Wolf" and former Miss Teen USA, will join Chico's Angels on stage for the first two weekends of the show from July 16-July 26th! Hennig will join in all the prison fun in multiple roles as episode #3: Chicas In Chains returns to the stage.

Hennig has also recently been seen on the silver screen in hit feature films as "Ouija" and "Unfriended". She was nominated for two Emmy awards for her role as Stephanie Johnson on the long running soap opera, "Days of Our Lives.

"Chico's Angels 3: Chica's in Chains" plays at the Cavern Club Theater inside Casita Del Campo Restaurant (1920 Hyperion Ave, Silverlake, CA 90027). Tickets on sale at: www.chicosangels.com.

In "Chicas in Chains" a high school streetwalker is killed in a string of murders and Chico's Angels are hired to go undercover to find a witness at a local prep school. But the Angels don't realize they've gotten so deep in the case that they end up in jail.

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. Think of the 70s series, Charlie's Angels starring a Latino Three Stooges in drag.

These Latina sex goddesses have been an underground cult hit in Los Angeles with their stage version of the series for the last thirteen years, which they have also performed in Las Vegas and San Diego.

Chico's Angels: Chicas in Chains is directed by Kurt Koehler. The show was co-created and co-written by Oscar Quintero and Kurt Koehler.

Story of Chicas in Chains:

Kay, Chita and Bossman go undercover to infiltrate the student body to get close enough to find clues. Meanwhile, Frieda goes undercover as a substitute Algebra teacher. Soon the Angels discover that life in high school is harder than they remember. Between run-ins with A-listers Kelly and Becky, ignoring honor student, Roxy, and competing for the attention of Hot Man on Campus, Peter Rison, the Angels don't realize that they've gotten so deep in the case that they end up in jail.

ehind bars, the Angels are cut off from Bossman and Chico and must rely on the kindness of a stranger, Spice. Bossman finally finds a way to help the Angels, but spends most of his time fending off Prison Matron, Rhonda and avoiding being discovered by Warden Cox.

The Angels are determined to break out of jail, find the witness and win the school talent show!

About the Angels:

Kay Sedia: She was born in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, Kay is the youngest of 18 children and the prettiest of them all. So pretty in fact: she won the title and crown of Miss Tijuana Natural Springs Water, "The water that springs right thru you". One of her duties as Miss Tijuana Springs was a self-guided, one-woman boat tour of the Pacific Ocean via San Diego. Thought to be dead and lost at sea, Kay emerged back into the border spotlight. It was the charity she founded, "Save the Donkeys," which let her hometown know that she was O-Kay! She soon became romantically involved with her hunky arresting immigration officer. To prove her love to him, she joined the police academy... and failed. She then turned to high fashion modeling where she could make lots of money using her stylish good looks and charming personality. She had huge success with modeling girdles in the Penny Saver Magazine. After being spotted there she was asked to join the crime-fighting trio Chico's Angels. Kay moonlights and makes a modest living selling Tupperware (www.kaysedia.com) to helpless homemakers, maybe you saw her trying to help those "The Real Housewives of Orange County" (season 5 episode 9) . Kay lives her life as a Detective/Model/Tupperware Sales Lady, but is the most voluptuous and the pretty Angel of all times. (expect maybe Jaclyn Smith)

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.
