ALWAYS ... PATSY CLINE

Show Credits
Written and originally directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story
Licensed by the family and estate of Patsy Cline. All rights reserved.

Description
The story is based on Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger. Having first heard Cline on the "Arthur Godfrey Show" in 1957, Seger became an immediate and avid fan of Cline's. By coincidence, she meets Cline in 1961. The two women struck up a friendship that was to culminate in Cline spending the night at Seger's house--a friendship that lasted until Cline's untimely death in a plane crash in 1963. The show combines humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline while she was alive a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what seeing her was like and what she meant to her original fans.


GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL!

Show Credits
Written by Scott Brown & Anthony King
Gutenberg! The Musical! is produced by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc.

Description
In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers’ audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract – fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.
