Always, Patsy Cline
by Fredericksburg Theater Company

Jun. 14 - Jun. 15

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 1961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The musical play includes many of Patsy' unforgettable hits such as “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces”, “Sweet Dreams” and “Walking After Midnight.”
