Always . . . Patsy Cline to Return to Greenbrier Valley Theatre Stage
An audience favorite is returning to the stage this fall as Greenbrier Valley Theatre has added Always . . . Patsy Cline, a dinner theatre, to its October/November schedule.
The ever-popular two-person musical, which features 26 Patsy Cline songs, is based on the true story of the singer’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger.
Audiences will be quite familiar with the show’s cast as GVT Artistic Director Cathey Sawyer takes on the role of Seger and GVT alum – and crowd pleaser – Kim Morgan Dean returns to take on the challenging role of country music legend Cline.
Always . . . Patsy Cline focuses on the evening in Houston’s Esquire Ballroom when Seger, who established a strong friendship with Cline after a chance meeting in 1961, learns of the singer’s untimely death in a plane crash in 1963.
Seger narrates while Cline floats in and out singing the songs that turned her into the country icon she remains today.
The show opens Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m., with a preview/pay-what-you-wish performance on Oct. 25.
Additional dates are: Oct. 27 and Nov. 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 and 17. All shows start at 7:30 p.m.
There will also be matinee performances at 2:00 PM on November 3 and 17.
Dinner, which is optional and available at an additional charge and requires reservations, will be served one hour before each performance.
