Based on a true story.
Always…Patsy Cline is a delightful musical about friendship, country music and a brilliant artist who left us all too soon.
This production was so popular that we have almost run out of playbills on our final weekend! If you miss getting one at the show this weekend, never fear. You can read it online HERE. Thank you for joining us for ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE!
Featuring27 unforgettable hits, including “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall to Pieces,” and “Sweet Dreams” this musical memory book is much more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963. Always…Patsy Cline is a true story about Cline’s friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Featuring a live band on the intimate SLO REP stage, poignant tales of Patsy’s life on the road are told with down-home country humor and brought to life through music, laughter and even some audience participation. Always… Patsy Cline takes audiences through the ups and downs of Patsy’s career, from her breakthrough on live radio, to her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry.
The show’s title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which were consistently signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”
Always…Patsy Cline will run approximately two hours, including one 15 minute intermission.
