Boston, get ready! Friday, October 14th is your chance to audition for an upcoming role on either CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

It all goes down today between 1PM-4PMEST at the CBS Restaurant and Bar in Foxboro.

And in addition to your chance to audition, B&B’s Scott Clifton (Liam) and Melissa Ordway (Abby) will be on hand for a meet and greet with the fans (even if you are not there to audition!).

For those about to get a taste of the life of an actor trying to get on a daytime soap, here is what you need to know if you are auditioning:

Contestants will each receive a 2-minute audition and will be asked to act out a scene. Click here to download a copy of the Male & Female scenes.

The local casting committee will select 10 finalists from each region to be submitted to the network to select a winner.

The person who is selected will receive a SAG/AFTRA contract guaranteeing him or her compensation as a principal performer in a dramatic serial for a single episode at the prevailing scale rate.

The episode, tape date, character portrayed, amount of dialogue, and/or the broadcast of any scenes in which the person selected appears are at the sole discretion of the producers. As is the case with the editing of the show in general, the producers reserve the right not to include the participant’s appearance in the show.

Additionally, the person who is selected will receive round-trip coach class airfare for two from airport nearest winner’s home to Los Angeles, three nights lodging (double occupancy), ground transportation and a per diem. The actual dates of travel are to be determined.

I was hoping to attend this casting, however, I could not get out of my scheduled work shift.

This is probably a good idea for fledgling actors…and quite a baptism by fire given the time constraints of a soap schedule. But I hope it’s not also a trigger for a show (especially GENERAL HOSPITAL) to add more unnecessary characters. I feel that Y&R made that mistake with Stitch, Luca, probably more I can’t recall. And don’t get me started on GH’S transgressions in this area: Jordan, Andre, Valentin, Nurse Amy, Aaron, Parker, T.J., Claudette, Officer (!) Valerie, Claudette’s daughter…enough already!

I agree Soaphound. Or they could go the opposite way, such as B&B, who hire wonderful talent, and don’t take advantage of that talent. In my opinion, one example would be the terrifically talented actor who plays Maya’s dad. Ioved when Maya’s family was introduced and getting all that air time. At least it took us away from the world of Wyatt, Steffie, and Liam, if only for a little while

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
