OCTOBER 2023 | Volume 232
Always…Patsy Cline by Ted Swindley is a play with music based on a true story.
First Impressions Theatre celebrating its 40th Anniversary season is bringing back some of its best loved productions to celebrate 40 years!
Next up is a brand-new version of ALWAYS … PATSY CLINE by Ted Swindley in our very own Deep Cove Shaw Theatre Nov. 16-Dec. 2.
This new production will be directed Michelle Thorne, currently Company Manager at THE ARTS CLUB THEATRE. Music and Vocal Direction are by Shawn Salsiccioli and Gordon Roberts and the show will feature a rip roaring 5-piece country band!
Also exciting is that the entire company will pack its bags in January and hit the road for a 4-week tour though Alberta, Metro Theatre and two venues on Vancouver Island: a total of 16 shows on the road!
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. It is based on a true story about Louise Seger, a bigger than life Texan and Patsy Cline fan who befriended the star and maintained a connection through letters until Patsy’s death. Complete with live band, down-home country humour and true emotion, the show includes many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight … 27 songs in all.
This fresh production in Deep Cove will star Colleen Rae Lornie in the role of Patsy Cline and Tiffany Bishop as Patsy’s friend Louise Seger. Both these actors are well-known and admired by our Deep Cove audience.
Nov. 16-Dec. 2, Wed through Sat at 7:30pm, except Sat, Nov 18 at 2pm only.
Join us for Talk Back after the show Fri., Nov 17.
