Seminole Casino Coconut Creek will host The Young and the Restless™ Soap Opera Festival™ on Saturday, August 12, at 8 p.m. in The Pavilion.
Tickets priced at $30/$40/$50 are on sale now via Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-653-8000. The Pavilion box office will also open at 1 p.m. on the day of the show for on-site ticket purchases and will call pickup.
The 75-minute show will feature actors Amelia Heinle (“Victoria Newman”), Christian Le Blanc (“Michael Baldwin”), Kristoff St. John (“Neil Winters”) and Tracey E. Bregman (“Lauren Fenmore Baldwin”) in a “Q&A” session with fans. Each will also offer a behind-the-scenes look at the Emmy® award-winning daytime drama.
Created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell for CBS, The Young and the Restless™ debuted in 1973 and has since won nine Daytime Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Drama Series. It’s currently the highest-rated daytime drama on American television.
The Young and the Restless™ originally focused on two core families – the wealthy Brooks family and the working class Foster family. After a series of recasts and departures in the early 1980’s, all the original characters except Jill Foster and Katherine Chancellor were written out. They were replaced with the new core families – the Abbotts and the Williamses. Over the years, other families such as the Newmans, Winters, and the Baldwin-Fishers were introduced.
Despite these changes, one storyline that has endured through almost the show’s entire run is the feud between Jill Abbott and Katherine Chancellor, the longest rivalry on any American soap opera.
Given its ongoing appeal, last month the series was renewed for three additional years.
