Tweet with cast members of ABC’s “General Hospital” today, April 1, using hashtag #GH50 during the East Coast broadcast of the daytime soap (2:00 – 3:00 PM ET/11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT). Fans will be able to chat with such “GH” stars as Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber), Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie Spencer), and even Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), whose characters is supposed to be “dead!” Hmm…
On Monday, April 1, ABC’s “General Hospital” turns 50! In honor of the event, fans have been anticipating the return of one of the shows grandest events…the Nurses Ball. While things don’t kick into high gear for the event until the Friday, April 5 episode, we at Soap Opera Network wanted to make sure you got a glimpse of some of your favorite actors before their characters start singing, dancing, and throwing punches.
Although “General Hospital” the TV show will turn the golden age of 50 on Monday, April 1, the General Hospital within the show has been preparing for the return of its annual Nurses Ball charity event, which has been inactive since June 2001, and Frank Valentini, Executive Producer, speaks on the return of the Nurses Ball and celebrating fifty years of a television icon.
The annual “General Hospital” Fan Club Weekend is more than 130 days away, but it’s never too early to find out who’s scheduling time with their fans. On Sunday, July 28 from 9:00 PM to midnight, “GH’s” Teresa Castillo (Sabrina Santiago) and Emily Wilson (Ellie Trout) will be hosting “Girls’ Night Out” at the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City, CA.
At a cost of $85 per person, “Girls’ Night Out” is described as an event where “fashion styles come and go and beauty trends fade in and out. One thing that’s always in style is quality time with your friends. At Girls Night Out, expect the unexpected. One thing you can expect is a lot of laughter, gossip and a few friends from the hospital to stop by. Rule number one: Whatever happens at ‘Girls’ Night Out’ stays at ‘Girls’ Night Out!’”
Soap Opera Network has learned that ABC’s “General Hospital” has hired actor Marc Samuel to portray the contract role of Felix, a nursing student friend of Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo, pictured), who helps her get ready for an important meeting.
Samuel first airs on Tuesday, December 4. Look for the character to play an integral role in helping return the annual Nurse’s Ball charity event to General Hospital.
