If able, no matter the amount, donations to the COVID-19 charity of your choice can be made in the memory of de Cazotte. A donation is not mandatory to participate.
The show’s former supervising producer Richard Schilling and producer Mary-Kelly Weir will host the highly anticipated event. Cherie Wall of Soap Opera Royalty is organizing. Wall was the show’s stage manager during its run.
