Grace Duryea (Martha Byrne) has just arrived in Long Lake Adirondack Affair Episode 1 2011 after the death of her father. A mysterious stranger, Charlotte (Ellen Dolan) is very concerned about Grace’s arrival and is on edge and ready to reveal a secret.
An Adirondack Affair is an event held every fall in Long Lake for fans of soap operas to get a chance to get to know the nuts and bolts of producing a soap opera. In 2011 fans joined two-Time Emmy Winner Martha Byrne and Emmy-nominee Ellen Dolan for a fun-filled weekend including a cabaret performance and on-camera acting with the actresses. The actresses shot scripted scenes with attendees. Seventeen pages of material were shot in six hours at four different locations with little or no rehearsal. Fans received their dialogue the morning of taping. No auditions, no stress of the casting call, just crazy, fast, rapid fire acting fun in an incredibly short turnaround time. Director Fritz Brekeller (All My Children) hopped in with little prep time to pull all the elements together.
The Town of Long Lake is thrilled to receive national media attention in the Novemeber 21st, 2011 publication of the magazine CBS Soaps in Depth. Alexandra Roalsvig, Long Lake Tourism Director, helped organize and coordinate the weekend by inviting Martha Byrne, Ellen Dolan and Fritz Brekeller up to do on the spot video taping with fans. “This event was a chance to introduce Long Lake to a new audience. Fans have the one an one chance to interact with some terrific talent and I get the chance to feature local Long Lake businesses as the backdrop for the story. The actors are thrilled to come to the Adirondack region and help promote Long Lake to a wider audience.”
