This Saturday night, Fast Jack’s restaurant in Tullahoma is set to host a private, star-studded, Hollywood-style event featuring cast members of the well-known TV series, “Days of Our Lives.”

Shawn Christian, who has played Dr. Daniel Jonas on the show since 2008, recently announced a local screening of his latest comedy production, “Addicts Anonymous,” at the Oldham Theatre in Winchester.

The screening is part of a unique promotional tour to offer fans from around the globe an opportunity to mingle with the cast throughout a weekend in the South.

The event features a VIP breakfast with the stars, a post-screening question and answer session with “Addicts” and “Days” cast members, and a tour of the Jack Daniel distillery.

Lastly, the group will be treated to a southern-style dinner reception with live entertainment at Fast Jack’s.

fast jacks“We’re excited to get to host and cater a unique event like this one,” said Fast Jack’s owner Laura Passarello.

“The upstairs will be open to the public all night while our downstairs section is reserved for the private event.

“There will be a live band as well as entertainment by Missy and Scott Reeves of Nashville, who have written songs for Toby Keith.

“We plan to lay out quilts and china and serve barbecue, deviled eggs and the whole southern ‘works.’”

According to a press release by Patrick Harbison Public Relations, the six-part web series is a collaboration with actors/writers Nate Hartley, Jack Briggs and Freddie Smith through Christian’s production company, Moonshine Entertainment.

The screening will include some of “Days’” biggest names, including Kate Mansi, Ari Zucker, and Melissa Reeves.

In addition to his role in the famous daytime drama, Christian has also appeared in hit comedies “Friends,” “Will & Grace,” “Ellen,” “Spin City,” and more.

“After months of writing, filming and editing, I’m excited to be sharing Addicts Anonymous in front of a live audience,” Christian said.

“I’m thrilled to see the crowd’s reaction and ecstatic that people will finally get to see our hard work play out on screen.”

The plot centers around the hilarious group sessions of several social misfits struggling with addictions of all kinds – drugs, food, sex, anger, and more.  The producers hope to get the series picked up for television.

The event is limited to 100 tickets and special package rates and accommodations have been arranged at Holiday Inn Express for attendees.

The full event is sold out but additional $60 tickets for the “Addicts Anonymous” screening may still be available through the Oldham Theatre Box Office at 931-691-0397.
