The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.

The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight - 27 songs in all! The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, "Love, Always... Patsy Cline."

Examples are: “What do you like to do in your free time?” or “What is your favorite thing about middle school?”

 

Casual Wear:

Casual wear will count for 20% of the overall score. It should be an outfit that reflects your personality and personal style. The most important thing to remember is the outfit should be age appropriate and fit well. Also remember to choose shoes that will be easy to walk in on stage.
