2015 - 2016 SEASON
ALWAYS PATSY CLINE
August 21st – September 12th, 2015
Named one of the most produced musicals in America according to American Theatre Magazine, Always…Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan, Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, the musical includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight…27 songs in all. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline."
