Our Next Event: Always... Patsy Cline

July 15 and 16 at 7:00pm and July 17 at 2:00pm

Event Image 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 is complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Waking 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."

Enjoy a delicious country style dinner before the show by adding just $10 to your ticket price.
