Always … Patsy Cline' tryouts March 12-13 at MLT
Special to The Star
March 4, 2001
Sweet dreams and memories happen when Meridian Little Theatre holds tryouts for "Always … Patsy Cline" March 12 and 13.
The Monday and Tuesday tryouts will will begin at 7 p.m. at the Highway 39 North playhouse.
Cline has been called "country music's greatest female singer," and this two character award-winning musical tells of a friendship that developed between the singer and a Texas housewife named Louise Seger.
In 1961, Seger had a chance meeting with Cline after a Houston concert and the two became fast friends. It was a friendship that lasted until Clines' untimely death in a 1963 plane crash.
The performers trying out for Patsy Cline will have to mimic her vocal style and mannerisms.
Louise sings several songs as back up to Patsy.
The Patsy Cline story is full of heartbreak and loneliness. Her music, with roots in life's experiences, tugs at the audience's heartstrings.
