Asbury Park Theater Company (APTCo) is thrilled to announce that their next production will be Ted Swindley’s "Always… Patsy Cline" starring Emmy Award-winning actress Sally Struthers and Broadway’s Carter Calvert for nine performances beginning December 1, 2023 at The Palaia Theater inside Jersey Shore Arts Center in the neighboring town of Ocean Grove.
“We are so honored to welcome Sally as Louise Seger, the Texas housewife who befriended Patsy Cline at local honkytonk early in her career. We have been itching to get her back to the main stage since she was kind enough to host APTCo’s kickoff fundraiser, A Little Musical Night back in the Summer of 2019,” said William Whitefield, Producing Artistic Director of APTCo. “And no one does Patsy better than Carter. They are both perfect for these roles.”
“It’s great to be presenting this show in the beautiful Palaia Theater at JSAC, a perfect setting for this intimate production,” says Bob Angelini, APTCo’s Managing Director. “By hosting us, Jersey Shore Arts Center is helping us to achieve our goal of bringing professional level theater to Asbury Park and the surrounding area. They have parking, they’re located alongside downtown Asbury Park, and it’s only a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Ocean Grove.”
More than a tribute to the legendary country singer, "Always… Patsy Cline" balances down home country humor, heartache and the hit music that made Patsy Cline a household name. The show is based on a true story about the relationship between Patsy Cline and Houston housewife Louise Seger. The production features a live band on stage backing Calvert as she expertly sings dozens of Cline's hits including "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces," "Anytime" and "Walking After Midnight."
The Asbury Park Theater Company's production of "Always... Patsy Cline" is directed by Jayme McDaniel, musically directed by Michael Gilch, features set design by Neil Prince and lighting design by Lyle Greene. The show is produced by Bob Angelini, William Whitefield and Serena Soffer.
"Always... Patsy Cline" opens Friday, December 1st and performances continue through Sunday, December 10th with evening and matinee performances available. Limited quantities of Premium Tickets with reserved seating on the orchestra level are on sale now! General Admission tickets with unreserved seating will go on sale on September 25, 2023.
