While adoring fans of “Guiding Light” are tearful that the longest running show in history has been cancelled, the “LIGHT” still shines on. The final episode has aired…and now the most beloved actors from “Guiding Light” are hitting the road, and making their only West Coast stop to personally thank and say goodbye to the loyal followers of the show. With sold out stops in both Pittsburgh and Atlanta, these engaging events are completely unprecedented and unique, allowing fans to see the stars they’ve watched for decades in ways they never dreamed possible. The Las Vegas extravaganza will take place in the convention center of the Rio on Saturday, Dec. 5 with a daytime session from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and an evening session that runs 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The daytime session includes an insightful question & answer session, a photo op with several actors, a behind-the-scenes presentation from a “Guiding Light” director and a hilarious, high-energy scene acting portion where randomly selected fans have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to act out real scenes with the actors using actual scripts. The evening session begins with light hors d’oeuvres, followed by a musical interlude of vocal performances by the stars, where attendees are again, seeing the actors as never before. The “magic” continues as the actors reveal and expose feelings and stories that many have never shared with each other.
Throughout the day, fans will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southern Nevada. Items being auctioned are priceless to “Guiding Light” fans, as these treasures are straight from the sets and dressing rooms of the show. Items include a beaded gown worn by “Reva,” a stunning faux pearl and diamond necklace worn by “Dinah,” decorative items from the yearly Bauer barbeque and the granite Spaulding tombstone. This silent auction opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 7:45 p.m. Winners must be present to win.
Tickets are available http://www.celebrityeventsgroup.com or by calling 1-866-364-0330. The charge for either the day or evening session is $90.00 or $170.00 for both. Those attending the combo session will receive pre-autographed headshots of all 12 actors. “So, Long, Springfield” merchandise is available for purchase and makes a great gift.
