Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R)This will be a chance for soap fans to not only experience a live comedy/soap opera, but see what their favorite real-life soap stars do when they’re caught with their “scripts down.”  SoapScum: Legacy follows the passions and perils of the Riverton family and their vineyard - a place where everyone is beautiful, but jealousy flows like wine.

This is the second annual charity event benefiting The FunHouse: Home of San Diego TheatreSports, and its youth programs. The FunHouse has been a leader in improvisational education and is currently taking their expertise into the school systems with after-school arts programs that are so desperately needed due to budget cuts. With the success of last years event, The FunHouse was able to offer after school classes focusing on improv training into 3 high schools - teaching them cooperation, creativity, confidence and character while developing their own fundraising programs. All proceeds from their shows help support their respective theatre departments. A first time week long summer camp was held for teens, as well as a summer workshop and an outreach show at a teen center. The FunHouse strives to offer as many scholarships as possible; this year will hopefully bring the program to more high schools as well as middle and elementary schools.

The performance will take place on Saturday, Sept 23, at 6:30 p.m.
in Hollywood, CA at The Renaissance Hotel. Ticket prices are $30, $55, and $75.

Live auction with collectible merchandise and a “Meet and Greet” with the stars including appetizers and no-host bar will follow the performance.

For Adrianne Leon, who plays smart and sassy Colleen Carlton on Y&R, SoapScum will be a prime opportunity to flex her comedy muscles while poking a little fun at her daytime home turf.  “What better way to turn a soap inside out than let the audience make the rules?” she says.  

“Ever wonder what would happen on a soap opera if the audience was in charge of the show?” asks FunHouse Artistic Director Trenton Shine.  “This years’ guest stars think they’re prepared for anything,” he smiles, “but just like last year, when it comes to improv comedy, all you can do is expect the unexpected.”

Past Blast

Days of our Lives Patsy Pease talks 50th and playing Kimberly Brady

Patsy Pease, who plays Kimberly Brady on Days of our Lives said that she is looking forward to the show's 50th anniversary and is so proud to be able to be a part of such a monumental program.

"Yes! I can't even think of a favorite moment. It was everyday," Pease said. "I love being Kim Brady. I have my life, and she has hers. I tend to mine and I tend to hers. I love it!"

Pease has been on Days of our Lives since 1984, and is celebrating her 31st year. Back in the day, Pease along with Charles Shaughnessy (Shane) were the hottest couple on daytime TV. In fact, they were once called "the" Super Couple.

Pease's character has been through it all -- lovers, trials and tribulations, and even went through a period of hysterical blindness, which she portrayed so well.
