ABC is getting glamorous as it continues to flash back to the past on General Hospital.

The network announced that it will air select episodes of the soap’s Nurses Ball, Port Charles’ most glamorous charity event, from Monday, May 25 through Friday, June 12. The event, founded in 1994 by Port Charles resident Lucy Coe, is dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness and research and features exquisite red carpet fashion, original music, musical and dance performances, and, of course, intrigue, excitement, and drama.

Previously, the soap began airing “Flashback Friday” encore episodes, set for April 3 through May 22. Production shut down on GH due to the coronavirus pandemic, and these filled the gaps in the schedule. (New episodes continued Monday through Thursday.)

General Hospital is the longest-running American soap opera and scripted television drama currently in production. It celebrated its 57th anniversary on Wednesday, April 1. It has won the Emmy for Outstanding Daytime Drama 13 times.
