Open auditions for
Always… Patsy Cline

April 1 & 2 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Written by Ted Swindley
Director: Daniel Fusillo
Music Director: Bonnie Hibbard

Description: Always…Patsy Cline is a musical based on a true story about Patsy Cline’s unlikely friendship with her biggest fan, Houston housewife Louise Seger, who befriends the country music legend in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961. Patsy finds in her a fast friend and a savvy business partner. Late night conversations between them create a bond that lasts a lifetime. This musical, complete with down-home humor and true emotion, includes many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as “Crazy,” “I Fall To Pieces,” and “Walking After Midnight.” It is a rousing musical that offers two outstanding female roles.

Cast Needed: Two adult female roles (one is a non-singing role)
Patsy Cline (the legendary country singer) – The role requires a dynamic and passionate actor who can embody Patsy Cline in voice and spirit. An ability to invoke her unique vocal style is essential. Prepare “Honky-Tonk Merry-Go-Round” and either “Crazy” or “I Fall To Pieces” for the audition.
Louise Seger (a Texas housewife and her biggest fan; non-singing role) – Louise is a strong-willed big-hearted Texan with a strong comedic sense. She must be able to hold the stage and interact with the audience at times.

** A pedal steel guitar player is needed for the onstage “Bodacious Bobcats Band.”

Assistance in technical aspects of the show is needed as well.

Show dates are June 4-7 and 11-14.
