'Patsy Cline' show runs through May 19

Broadway Rose produces the show for the second time


by: CRAIG MITCHELLDYER - BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - Sara Catherine Wheatley as singer Patsy Cline poses for publicity shots for the 2009 Broadway Rose production of 'Always... Patsy Cline,' which came in handy since the show is being produced again this year.
One of the best-loved names in country music is the subject of "Always...Patsy Cline," a funny and touching tribute as narrated by one of her most devoted fans and friends.

Broadway Rose Theatre Company is producing the show for the second time, and the musical tribute again features Sara Catherine Wheatley as Cline and Broadway Rose's artistic director Sharon Maroney as her friend Louise Seger.

In spite of her tragically brief career, Patsy Cline's voice continues to enthrall fans and influence many of today's country singers.

This warm and funny show celebrates the career and life of the singer of such hits as "I Fall To Pieces," "Crazy," "Walking After Midnight," "Just a Closer Walk with Thee," "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Stupid Cupid" and more.

Broadway Rose presented a sold-out run of "Always… Patsy Cline" in 2009.

"Our audience has been asking us to bring back the show every year since," Maroney said. "The time was right to put on the show again."

The original cast and most of the original creative team have been reassembled with plans to enhance the production visually and technically.

"Always… Patsy Cline" will be performed at the Broadway Rose New Stage, 12850 S.W. Grant Ave., in Tigard, Friday, April 19, through Sunday, May 19. Evening performances are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.; matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sundays, and on the following Saturdays - April 27, May 4, 11 and 18.

Ticket prices start at $30 for adults, with discounts available for groups and youth.
