"THE FABULOUS CHICKIES IN CONCERT - A BENEFIT FOR THE ACTORS FUND" will be live streamed on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 5 PM Pacific on the Actors Fund YouTube channel:

What do you get when eleven singers who are best girlfriends get together? Lunch, laughs, stories, and lots and lots of songs. Dubbing themselves The Chickies more than three years ago, their fabulous in-person monthly lunches morphed into monthly Zooms. Wanting to contribute in this difficult time, the women decided to do what they do best-sing! So, they will be showcasing their unique friendship and talents in a concert to benefit the Actors Fund. Doing songs from their illustrious Broadway, cabaret, and concert careers, this evening promises to be as special as they are.

Filled with humor, heart, and great singing, the show will feature each Chickie in a solo performance, as well as two bonus group numbers. Aiming to raise spirits and entertain, they hope the audience will be inspired to donate to The Actors Fund, which has been central to relief efforts for all entertainment professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
