Brought back by popular demand, the Pollard Theatre Company closes out its 31st Season with a celebration of a legendary music icon and an extraordinary friendship. Besides being a delightful tribute to the renowned country singer, ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE, is based on the true story of the friendship between Patsy and her most devoted fan, Louise Seger. This American classic returns to The Pollard Theatre, June 8th – 30th.
Named one of the most produced musicals in America according to American Theatre Magazine. ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE has enjoyed great success all over the United States. Combining humor, sadness and reality “Always…Patsy Cline” offers fans of Cline a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what she was like and what she meant to her original fans. With tunes that made her famous – Anytime, Walkin’ After Midnight, She’s Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy – to name a few, you are guaranteed a wonderful evening. “Always…Patsy Cline. Always a hit.” Biloxi Sun Herald
Director, Timothy Stewart (Company, Passing Strange, Rent), states “Our first production of “Always, Patsy Cline” in 2015 sold out nightly and back then I stated that I loved the music of Patsy Cline and the story of these two strong women and their friendship. Today, it is still true. I am delighted that Kara Chapman and Jodi Nestander have come back to reprise their roles of Patsy and Louise, respectively. I believe audiences will come back (or for the first time) and enjoy the music of Patsy Cline and be thoroughly entertained.”
Other members of the creative team include Todd S. Malicoate (Music Director), Michael James (Scenic and Costume Design), Michael Long (Lighting Design), Timothy Stewart (Property Design) and Jared Blount (Sound Design).
