Extra 'Patsy Cline' shows added in Huntsville
An August production of “Always ... Patsy Cline” has proved so popular that extra performances have been added this weekend. A concert is coming up, too.
Burritt on the Mountain and Renaissance Theatre’s Alpha Stage in Huntsville are sponsoring the show in the air-conditioned Old Country Church at Burritt, a living history museum in Huntsville.
Shows are scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Songs such as “I Fall to Pieces,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “Crazy” will be brought to life.
Criss Ashwell stars as country singer Patsy Cline, who had a tragically brief career, and Karen Lynn plays Patsy’s best friend.
Musical direction is by Mark Torstenson. The show was written and originally directed by Ted Swindley.
The $20 tickets are for sale at Josie’s shop at Burritt on the Mountain. To make reservations or for information, call 536-2882 or check the Web site www.burrittonthemountain
Burritt also has another City Lights and Stars concert coming up Aug. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Classically trained violinist Andy Stein and pianist Jeremy Kahn will perform under the stars as part of this series of casual outdoor concerts.
Hear swing-era music, Broadway tunes, classical and more while checking out the panoramic view of the Tennessee Valley from Burritt.
