Video: ‘Motherhood’ proceeds benefit Denver Actors Fund

DAFDonations are being taken this weekend at three concert readings of the new musical “Motherhood” to benefit the Denver Actors Fund.

“Motherhood” was written Mitch Samu. His wife, Kristen, is among the five performers. She is also heading the Denver Actors Fund’s new “Meal Preparation” and “Meal Delivery” Action Teams.

The concert readings are being performed by Clarissa Hope Stranske, Jacquie Jo Billings, Kristen Samu, Megan Van De Hey and Sarah Rex.

Admission is free. All donations will go to the Denver Actors Fund, a new source of immediate, situational relief for when members of the local theater community find themselves in sudden medical need.

The remaining readings will be held at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Saturday, March 1), and at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at Columbine United Church, 6375 S. Platte Canyon Road, Littleton.
