Always…Patsy Cline has enjoyed great success all over the United States, including a successful run off- Broadway. It has been one of the most produced musicals in America according to American Theatre Magazine. Always…Patsy Cline has also been enjoyed internationally by audiences in Canada, the UK and Australia.
Always…Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. 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 l961, 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, which were consistently signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”

An original musical revue celebrating life in IOWA
Conceived and directed by Miriam Kenning & Dennis Willhoit
Ioway Cabaret was born out of a much smaller show created by Miriam and Dennis. This newly-expanded work celebrates the life and culture of Iowa through songs, skits, humor, poetry, dance and maybe even some magic. Join the journey as we celebrate the history, both real and fictional, of Iowa. A special gala reception, included in the price of admission, will follow this ONE NIGHT ONLY performance.

The Three Little Pigs
An operatic adaptation of this familiar classic tale based on the music of W.A. Mozart
Adapted by John Davies
While brother pigs Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off to make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina, goes to the library to read up on “huff-proof, puff-proof” home construction. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys’ flimsy homes, they run to their sister’s sturdy new brick house quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all.
Recommended for children grades K-2
