ALWAYS . . . PATSY CLINE

Created and originally directed by Ted Swindley
Directed by Shaun Carroll

More than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963, ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE 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 and true emotion, 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.
