ALWAYS . . . PATSY CLINE

Created and Originally Directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story
Directed by Shaun Carroll
Music Director Colin Hannon
Featuring Diana Torres Koss and Julie James

Back by popular demand, this revival of our 2017 hit production brings you two of Jewel’s most beloved actors who pay tribute to an incredible performer in a true story about Patsy Cline’s friendship with hilarious Houston housewife Louise Seger who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk. The two women struck up a friendship that lasted until Cline’s untimely death in a plane crash. What started as fan worship evolved into mutual respect between two women with common concerns in life, family and love. Filled with laughter and song, ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE will celebrate “sweet dreams” come true for Jewel reaching 20 years as well as for Patsy and those who loved her music.

Due to popular demand, we’ve changed the curtain time for all evening performances this season to 7:30 PM and added Saturday matinees to every weekend of performances.
Seating for this production includes seats at cabaret tables. Please contact the box office for more details and to reserve this seating.
 
For any performances that appear to be sold-out, please contact the box office to inquire about availability.
