Always...Patsy Cline- A Holly Theater Endowment Fundraiser
"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
from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk
in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.
The musical play, complete with down home country humor,
true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy'
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
The musical is performed by two women and a live band.
Two Holly Theatre Company members will play the roles: Kecia Garland as Patsy
Cline and Linda Thompson as Louise Seger. Tim Quigley will be directing and
Leanne Kinney is the music director. This special production is not part of the
Holly main stage season.
