Cassie Chilton as Patsy Cline

Always... Patsy Cline

June 8, 2022 to August 7, 2022
Hormel Theatre

Based on the true story of a pen-pal friendship set to the soundtrack of country’s most vibrant voice

Always…Patsy Cline is a true story about Cline’s friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her untimely death in a plane crash. The show’s title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which were consistently signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.” Tales of Patsy’s life on the road are told with down-home country humor and brought to vibrant life through her music.

Content warnings: strobe effect, haze, cigarette smoke, and some adult language.

Run time: Act One is 50 minutes, Intermission is 15 minutes, and Act Two is 47 minutes.
