It's just not spring without the GENERAL HOSPITAL Nurses Ball and this year, the annual event will be kicking off in the episode scheduled to air on Friday, May 17! Of course, that’s just the glamorous red carpet and all the drama that goes along with it. The actual stage show, featuring all the musical performances, will air on Monday, May 20, Tuesday, May 21, and Wednesday, May 22. Founded in 1994 by Lucy Coe, the annual GH Nurses Ball is celebrating its 25th year raising money for HIV/AIDS awareness and research.
“This will be GH’s 15th Nurses Ball. In the 25 years that we have been doing this, it’s been a thrill to treat our wonderful viewers with something a little out of the ordinary. This year will be particularly special and personal. We were able to incorporate original music and performances from a few of our actors, including James Patrick Stuart (Valentin),” shared GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini. “There’s a lot of heart in these amazing performances. You won’t want to miss them!”
GREY’S ANATOMY star and self-confessed GH super fan, Chandra Wilson, has already been revealed as a special guest star as she returns to the soap for a third time to play another character, this time co-hosting the red carpet with Michelle Stafford’s Nina. And they will be joined by KABC Los Angeles entertainment reporter George Pennacchio, who is returning to cover the red carpet for another year.
There will be plenty of surprises in store at the Nurses Ball as there are every year, but the soap has teased that among the many dramatic events taking place at the gala, an evening of romance for one Port Charles couple will end in a proposal! Check out this exciting teaser for the drama to come:
