AN `AIDS' BENEFIT will be held by members of the "A Chorus Line" cast on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 11 p.m. at the Broadway Stage, 272 S. Main, with a variety of cabaret-style entertainment by the performers -reading, musical selections, dance, etc.
The cast conducted a similar fund-raiser during its stop in Fresno, Calif., and, according to Steve Boulay, of the Theater League of Utah, who was there at the time, it was a great sucess. A poster from the show signed by the cast was auctioned off for $500.
Some of the songs and readings dealt with the AIDS epidemic and were very moving and powerful, he reported.
Tickets for the benefit show are $10 and will be availabel at the door or in advance from the utah AIDS Foundation, 450 S. 900 East, Suite 205.
Richard Nelson of the UAF said funds generated by the event will go directly into a new program the foundation has just implemented to provide hot meals for acute AIDS victims who are unable to prepare their own meals.
The program is being coordinated with the Continuity of Care program at Holy Cross Hospital, which will provide names of thos requiring assitance, in addition to names from the foundation's client list.
Proceeds from tickets will be used for the Utah AIDS Foundation program while money earned in the auction of T-shirts, posters and other itmes connected directly to the show will go into the Broadway Cares fund of Actors Equity.
Nelson said the Salvation Army will provide the meals and the foundation will administer the program, with Utah AIDS Foundation volunteers delivering the food.
Nelson said a number of local civic organizations and businesses have lent support to the program and "I can't speak too hightly of the Broadway Stage, the Space Agency (the local booking agency that has developed the Theater League of Utah), Stageworks and Actors Equity. The have all donoted goods and services."
Seating in the Braodway Stage is limited. Purchasing tickets in advance from the Utah AIDS Foundation is recommended.
