Kate Schuman & Julie Greene

It opens tomor­row — here’s more from Jan at the Com­munty Theatre:

Direct­ed by SJCT’s Mer­ritt Olsen, Always…Patsy Cline (writ­ten by Ted Swind­ley), brings the music of the country/pop music icon to life on the Whit­ti­er stage.  Based on the true sto­ry of Pat­sy Cline (Kate Schuman)’s friend­ship with Hous­ton house­wife Louise Seger (played by Julie Greene), the play takes us through 27 songs and Louise’s humor­ous and poignant mono­logues.  A live band of pop­u­lar island musi­cians (Den­ny Holm, Kei­th Busha, Han­neke Klein Robben­haar, Steve Keys and Tom Doenges) are part of the action and we’ll even have a dance floor ready so make sure to order an aisle seat and put on those dancin’ shoes.  You are even invit­ed to “go coun­try”, if you want!

Look for­ward to a spe­cial open­ing night par­ty (root beer floats, any­one?) host­ed by CATS on Thurs­day, May 7 at 7:30 p.m.  The play con­tin­ues May 8–10 and 14–16.
