I just read on the Soap Opera Digest website that the General Hospital Nurses' Ball for 2016 will be May 24 - 26! It will be the 12th Nurses' Ball. It is definitely my favorite time of year on General Hospital. In case you are not familiar with it, the characters put on performances to raise money for AIDS research. Some of the performances are pretty elaborate with lots of singing and dancing.There's also a lot of humor.
Some past performances:
A few times Ned, played by Wally Kurth, has performed as his alter ego Eddie Maine. In real life Wally is a singer. Characters, including Alan and Emily, performed as Wizard of Oz characters. Lucy Coe usually hosts it. She is always hilarious and has tons of outfit changes. Richard Simmons was on a year or two ago. He was pretty funny. One year Robin was onstage upset and Jason as Steve Burton came in and whisked her away. There was a Magic Milo performance. Frisco sang a few years ago. That was sooo awesome! Rick Springfield has sang. Mac was a ventriloquist. Lots of memorable performances!!!
UPDATE - 4/6/16 - Great news! - Lynn Herring is coming back to General Hospital for the 2016 Nurses' Ball! On top of that, Kimberly McCullough will also be back! Both essential to the Nurses' Ball.
