In attempt to help staff who suffer from three-months writers' strike, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" will hold a charity gig.
Cast of TV drama series "Grey's Anatomy" will celebrate the end of writers' strike by conducting a live singing performance. The Emmy-winning show and its spin-off "Private Practice" cast will entertain a number of crew affected by the strike that had just ended after three months while raising money for them.
Writers of "Grey's Anatomy" announced on their official site, "For one night only, the casts of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice are coming together for a live performance! An unforgettable evening of laughter and song to benefit crew members who were affected by the strike."
"Because while the strike is over, it will be months before many crew members are back to work. Millions of dollars in income were lost. Many crew members are suffering. And we want to do anything we can to help out."
The show will be held at UCLA's Royce Hall on February 29 and tickets for the show can be purchased via Ticketmaster.com.
"Grey's Anatomy" is featuring Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Katherine Heigl, Patrick Dempsey and many more. It is not revealed how many of the cast or who will be on the charity gig. "See them all! Cause they wanna see you! And help raise some money to help others," creator Shonda Rhimes only said.
