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.

For information on tickets ($8 to $12 in advance and $15 at the gate) and dining options available, call 536-2882.
