The sultry sounds of one of the most acclaimed vocalists of the 20th century will fill the Roxy Regional Theatre, February 8 through March 2, in the perennial favorite and beloved musical Always...Patsy Cline.
Taking the stage in tribute to the country music legend who died tragically in a plane crash at the height of her career is Jacque Clydesdale. Although currently based out of New York, Jacque has strong ties to Music City, originally being from Brentwood, Tennessee, and having performed as a soloist with the LA Pops Orchestra in a tribute honoring Diane Warren, singing Shania Twain's famous "From This Moment" duet with Grammy Award Winner BRyan White.
Written by Ted Swindley and directed by Tom Thayer, Always...Patsy Cline is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger (played by Roxy favorite Leslie Greene) who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her tragic passing at age 30.
Featuring over 25 unforgettable hits, including "Walkin' After Midnight," "I Fall To Pieces," "Crazy," "She's Got You," "Your Cheatin' Heart" and more, this beloved musical features a live band consisting of Tom Thayer (piano), John Waddle (guitar), Jarrod Jackson (steel), Scott Emerson (fiddle), Bruce Ervin (bass) and Thad Wallus (drums).
On Saturday, February 9, treat your valentine to an unforgettable evening of music, down-home country humor, tasty drinks and sumptuous hors d'oeuvres with "Martinis with Patsy." Courtesy of Pal's Package Store, martinis will be flowing at 6:30pm, complemented by a menu created especially for this event by Fire & Ice Catering. Always...Patsy Cline will take the stage at 8pm.
