Footloose and Side Man will give benefit performances this Jan., Footloose's on Jan. 17, Side Man's on Jan. 24. Money from ticket sales go to the Actors' Fund of America. Tickets are available at regular box office prices by calling 1-800-FUND TIX ext. 121/133, through Ticketmaster/Tele-Charge and at the theatres' box office.
The nation's "only human service organization for all entertainment professionals," the Actors' Fund of America is best known for providing financial assistance and social services (food, rent, medical expenses) to professionals in need. Given on a night when the show doesn't normally play, an Actors' Fund performance, with all benefits going to the Fund, charges the same box office prices as on other nights and is often well attended by members of the entertainment community.
