VIVA LA CHICAS!
Show opens on May 24 - June 14, 2018 with 11 shows.
(Silverlake,CA) - April 22, 2017 - The south of the border hotties, Chico's Angels are proud to announce the return of their sold out one hour variety show: VIVA LA CHICAS! Chico's Angels Variety Hour will entertain the audience with songs, dance and comedy! The show stars Kay Seida, Frieda Laye, Chita Parol & Bossman.
VIVA LA CHICAS will open on Thursday, May 24, 2018 and has 11 show dates at The Cavern Club Celebrity Theater inside Casita Del Campo Restaurant (1920 Hyperion Ave, Silverlake, CA 90027). Tickets are now on sale at: www.chicosangels.com
VIVA LA CHICAS is a flashback and flashforward variety show, featuring the Angels performing sketches, beloved musical numbers and of course their HIT single "You Don't Know My Life." "You Don't Know My Life" reached the top 7,2000 on Amazon.com! The combined talent of these three Angels will capture the audience and take them on a tour across the border they will not soon forget!
The one hour VIVA LA CHICAS variety show will showcase the multi talented Kay Sedia, who is a total talent in all ways! Joining her on stage are her co-Angels, the sexy and the most giving talent, Frieda Laye (and she gives her all to all the men she can!) and the always "ok" talent of Chita Parol. Chita's appearance is pending approval from her parole officer. (talent note: Chita made us have her in the show....or she would kick us in the shins)!
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 their stage version of the series for the last 14 years.

ABOUT THE ANGELS:
Kay Sedia: Kay Sedia 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.
