By Ted Swindley

Always...Patsy Cline is making its return to The Grand Theatre and stars Erica Hansen in her return performance as Patsy Cline. Hailed as the Performer of the Year in 2004, Erica was mentioned as one of theater critic Ivan Lincoln's Most Memorable Performances of his 20 year career. Now in its fifth year as a Fall production at The Grand, Always...Patsy Cline features, newcomer to this show, Camille Van Wagoner as Louise.

The show is based on a true story about Pasty Cline's friendship with a devoted fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love Always...Patsy Cline."

Richard Scott, Executive Artistic Director of the Grand Theatre, directs and this production with Kevin Mathie, musical director, heading up the talented six-piece band. The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Waking After Midnight...27 songs in all.
