Dinner Theater - "Always Patsy Cline"

Active Older Adult Events

Paul Henson Family YMCA (Prairie Village)

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 Cline." RSVP at the Welcome Center by December 1st, 2021. Meet at New Theatre at 11:40 a.m. Tickets: $38 for members, $40 for community participants
