A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline
By Dean Regan
Based on the Book by E.B. White
Direction and Musical Direction by Sam Henderson

Featuring more than 20 of the legendary Patsy Cline’s unforgettable hits, A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline, the toe tappin’, foot stompin’ musical tribute traces Patsy’s remarkable career from her early days singing in the honky-tonks of Virginia, to her rise to fame on radio and the Grand Ole Opry stage, to her stunning triumph at Carnegie Hall. Best known as a country music star, Patsy also dominated the blues, pop, and gospel charts of the 50’s and 60’s with hit after hit. With her live, 5-piece band and our own version of the world-famous “Jordanaires” quartet backing her up, Patsy and her glorious voice takes the stage once more to sing her greatest hits “Crazy”, “Walking After Midnight” and “I Fall To Pieces”.

WAITRESS

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
