Annual Gala Fundraiser

One World Stage & Screen is pleased to present its 3rd Annual Gala Fundraiser – the event includes a live stage performance of excerpts from a fantastic play, starring Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans (who have played Patch and Kayla for over 30 years on “Days Of Our Lives”). Dessert reception, plus a meet & greet with the stars of the show will take place immediately following the performance.

On Sunday, November 13th, for one night only, Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols will take the stage at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in a special performance to benefit One World Stage & Screen.

In a staged reading, Mary Beth & Stephen will portray former lovers who come together, in a trailer park in the middle of nowhere, for a final reckoning. Two people, one room, and a breathtaking story about the longevity of love.

Following the 50-minute performance, the two daytime TV stars will host green room visit with VIP guests, before adjourning to a dessert and cocktail reception, where they will mix and mingle with attendees.  There will be a brief Q&A during the red carpet photo opportunity.

A Note From Your Hosts:


At Studio C Artists, we have built a reputation based on our innovative training and ability to create productions that “live out loud”. And yet, we know there are many we just can’t serve due to the limitations of means and access. That is why we have decided to respond to the ever-increasing need for aid to underserved individuals in the performing arts by incorporating One World Stage & Screen (OWSS).

The performing arts can be such a positive force for change to enrich and redirect people’s lives – and yet, so many  don’t have access to the training and on-the-job skills necessary to forge a career on stage and screen. This is our aim – We provide high quality training and mentorship to professional-grade, young actors who lack the financial resources. Our goal is to level the playing field and create opportunities for talented youth, because we believe that the composition of the acting field should not be dictated by financial means.

We invite you to join us for this fantastic performance and fundraiser – to bring awareness to our cause and also much needed donations, so that we can continue our operations and the programs we are setting up for underserved youth.

So, bring your friends and join us for this fun party – and help us raise some much needed funds to assist those in need!

We hope you can make it!  And thank you in advance for your participation and support!
