It will follow Peter Garrett (Kristos Andrews) as he journeys to NYC to find Claire Andrews (Marie Wilson) the woman who he believes to be his mother.

They boy who plays Peter is a dreadful actor. It’s an interesting idea, but hard to get excited about. I wish they’d recast his role.

Wow, what a cool idea! I’m so excited to see where this journey takes Peter. Kristos Andrews is precious and is doing a great job in this role. I think he’s pretty new to acting, but I saw a ton of growth in his performances in just the first season. I bet this gives him a great opportunity to really hone his talent.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
