Firebrand Theatre is now accepting Understudy submissions from non-Equity actors for our Winter 2019 production of ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE.

ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE
Written by Ted Swindley
Direction by Brigitte Ditmars
Music Direction by Andra Velis Simon

ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE is based on the true story of Patsy’s friendship with Houstonite Louise Seger. Having first heard Patsy on the Arthur Godfrey Show in 1957, Louise became an immediate and avid fan of Patsy’s and she constantly hounded the local disc jockey to play Patsy’s records on the radio. In 1961 when Patsy went to Houston for a show, Louise and her buddies arrived about an hour-and-a-half early and, by coincidence, met Patsy who was traveling alone. The two women struck up a friendship – a friendship that lasted the rest of Patsy Cline’s life.
