Actor Whoopi Goldberg (above) will be one of the headliners of the Guthrie's 50th anniversary gala, the Minneapolis theater announced Monday.

Goldberg, a co-host of "The View," has done stand-up engagements at the old Guthrie on Vineland Place. She did a five-night stand there in 1988 and a one-night gig in June 2001.

Golberg won an Oscar for her role in "Ghost." She also was a producer of the Tony-winning show "Thoroughly Modern Millie."

Golberg joins a roster of actors and entertainers that includes T.R. Knight ("Grey's Anatomy"), Patricia Kalember ("thirtysomething"), Tony nominee Tracie Bennett ("End of the Rainbow"), and the vocal group Cantus.

The gala, planned for June 22, wil be co-hosted by Greta Oglesby and Sally Wingert.
