On October 1st, 2011 fans of As The World Turns stars Martha Byrne and Ellen Dolan arrived in Long Lake NY to participate in a unique fan weekend. Soap fans had the chance to act one on one with real life soap opera stars.
The story follows Grace Duryea (Martha Byrne) as she returns to her hometown of Long Lake, NY for the reading of her estranged father’s will. She’s reluctantly returned after 20 years. The characters she interacts with are all played by fans participating in the unique weekend.
Charlotte (Ellen Dolan) is upset about Grace Duryea’s return to Long Lake. Charlotte wants to keep the ghosts of the past buried, but now it is nearly impossible.
Please note: All characters are fictional and created for this project. Any resemblance to anyone living or dead is a coincidence.
Special thanks to Ali Baba’s Liquor Store and Quackenbush’s Long View Wilderness Lodge in Long Lake, NY for providing us with great locations.
It’s just one of many events offered to visitors in Long Lake, NY. More episodes to follow and look for Adironack Affair in 2012. You can act with the stars!
