PULASKI, Tenn. – “Always…Patsy Cline” will be staged 7 p.m. Aug. 18-19 and Aug. 25-26 at STAAR Theatre’s Antoinette Hall. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The show is based on a true story about Patsy 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 show’s title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which were consistently signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”
The musical, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, has 27 songs, including Cline’s hits like “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Walking After Midnight.” “Always...Patsy Cline” had a successful run off-Broadway and through the U.S. and has been enjoyed by audiences in the U.K., Australia and Canada.
Patsy Cline is played by Sandy Slayton-Mavrotheris and Louise Seger is played by Tammy Pierchoski.
Music Row and regional veteran performers portray Patsy's Bodacious Bobcat Band. The musicians are Dave delRosario on bass, Bobby Curlee on lead guitar, Randall Lee Felske on drums, Jimmy Puckett on steel and Jason Perry on the keyboard.
