The Plaza Theatre, on Monterey Square in Wharton, will present the first show of its 2021-2022 season. 

“Always… Patsy Cline” returns to the Plaza stage with the cast and director that commanded sold out shows and an encore performance in 2018. 

This musical will be performed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Oct. 15-24. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinee performances beginning at 2:30 p.m.  

A Facebook review of the previous production from patron Sherry Stanley reads “6 Stars!! The best you have ever had! The singing was wonderful, the band was great, and the blend of comedy and singing was first rate. A great production.”

About the Show:  Always… Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. 

The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.

The musical play, complete with down-home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of her 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 Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”

General admission is $20. Plaza Theatre season ticket holders are reminded they can use their season tickets for this event.
