HRT to present ‘Always, Patsy Cline’

Harnett Regional Theatre and Select Bank & Trust will present the third show of HRT’s season, ‘Always, Patsy Cline” starting February 26th for one weekend only. The show will be at the Stewart Theatre in Downtown Dunn. Jacob Godwin is the director for the show. Admission is $15 and is general seating. The show will star Diane Bailey, nationally renowned Patsy Cline impersonator and Amy Langdon.

Always…Patsy Cline is based on the true story of Patsy Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger. Having first heard Cline on the “Arthur Godfrey Show” in 1957, Seger became an immediate and avid fan of Cline’s and she constantly hounded the local disc jockey to play Cline’s records on the radio. The relationship, which began as fan worship evolved into one of mutual respect. It is the kind of relationship that many fans would like to have with their heroes. The show combines humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline while she was alive a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what seeing her was like and what she meant to her original fans.

Tickets can be purchased at the theatre beginning at 6:30pm on Saturday night and 1:30pm on Sunday night. 

Performance dates are February 26-28 at 7:30pm and March 1st at 2:30pm
