Many of the stars of AS THE WORLD TURNS will be coming together for a virtual reunion on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 8 p.m. ET to support live theater. Trent Dawson, who played Henry on ATWT and is the founding artistic director of Katonah Classic Stage, is bringing his castmates together for a once-in-a-lifetime special event.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on many industries around the world, including live performances. Some venues are even closing down permanently because of the shutdown, so the cast of ATWT is coming together to help raise money for Katonah Classic Stage, a professional, nonprofit theater just north of ATWT’s home for decades, New York City. “I am so grateful that the ATWT has come together to support live theater,” Dawson said. “It will be wonderful to see all of my friends and colleagues together again soon.”
Over two dozen ATWT cast members will be participating in a live reading of the iconic soap’s final episode as well as answering fan questions. Don Hastings (Bob), Kathryn Hays (Kim), Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda), Larry Bryggman (John), Michael Park (Jack), Terri Conn (Katie), and Colleen Zenk (Barbara) have been confirmed, and there will also be some surprise guests, so you do not want to miss this! A minimum donation of $15 will secure you a link to watch the live event when it streams on Oct. 28. Simply click here for more information and to get your virtual “ticket.”
