Always Patsy Cline
Last year, Kanab's charming Redstone Theater was born, launching with a professional production of the hit musical, Always... Patsy Cline. After a successful initial run (which received an average of 5/5 stars from over 100 reviews) the team has reassembled and is bringing Patsy and the band back together for a second season.
Always Patsy Cline tells the true story of the legendary singer (played by Lyndsey Wulfenstein) through the eyes of her admiring and hilarious friend Louise Seger (Mariah Wheeler). The play features 30 of Cline’s most popular musical selections, accompanied by a sizzling six-piece band. Musicians include Kortney Stirland (keyboard), Russell Wulfenstein (fiddle and acoustic guitar), Josh Baird (electric guitar), Jack Allen (Bass), Jason Zurech (drums), and Dan Monnett (pedal steel). Together, the ensemble presents an incredible breadth of musical experience with players having performed in over 20 countries and throughout much of the United States. Dan Monnett famously had the amazing experience of playing with the original man in black, Johnny Cash himself.
Whether you are a long-time fan of Patsy Cline, or are just now reading her name for the first time, this show has humor, heart, and music everyone will enjoy. Discover the powerful story of Patsy Cline as you've never seen it before.
