This from the troupe in press release:
“Grab your popcorn and settle in for some daytime drama. Stefano DiMera plans to woo Luke Spencer and Dr. Noah Drake, the board presidents of St. Vincent Hospital and Bellin Hospital, at Green Bay’s annual masquerade ball. Stefano hopes to combine the two hospitals and build the largest and most successful hospital in the world. To do so, he’s enlisted the help of his diabolical daughter, Kristen DiMera. At the party, Stefano wants Kristen to lure Laura Spencer away from Luke and Erica Kane away from Dr. Noah Drake. Kristen correctly assumes this task will be more than a little difficult. There’s no way Luke will leave Laura’s side, especially since she’s begun showing bizarre symptoms and passing out without warning. Plus, Dr. Noah Drake is beyond preoccupied trying to show off to the diva of all divas, Erica Kane. Will a successful acquisition occur, or will unexpected plot twist after plot twist ruin Stefano’s plan? You’ll have to find out in ‘Bays of Our Lives.’ As they say, like cheese through an hourglass, these are the bays of our lives.”
