“Always…Patsy Cline” brings live theatre back to Raue Center

Raue Center For The Arts presents “ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE” by Ted Swindley, based on the true story of Patsy’s friendship with Houstonite and superfan, Louise Seger — a friendship that lasted the rest of Patsy Cline’s life. Running March 19 – April 16th at Raue Center!

This moving musical, complete with laughs, down-home country charm, and sisterhood, includes many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Walking After Midnight”… 27 songs in all! The show’s title was inspired by Patsy’s letters to Louise, which were lovingly signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”
