Closer Walk Ticket ImageIt’s the week many of you have been waiting for! Springer Theatricals will present A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline 7:00 PM THIS FRIDAY, February 26 at the Appling County High School Fine Arts Center. Then, on Saturday, Friends of Caroline Miller is hosting its first monthly Pickin’ on the Porch!

A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline is an upbeat musical that reveals the emotional depth and vocal range of Patsy Cline, a singer who career made history defining the term “crossover hit” by dominating country, blues, pop and gospel charts simultaneously in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Throughout A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Little Big Man, a disk jockey from her hometown of Winchester, Va., traces the late singer’s footsteps from early honky-tonk and radio days through her rise at the Grand Ole Opry plus her appearances at Carnegie Hall and Las Vegas. Our “Patsy,” backed by a live band, performs 22 of Cline’s greatest hits including “Walkin’ after Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams,” “I Fall to Pieces” and “Crazy.” The audience is treated to a stunning array of elaborate show costumes from Cline’s signature blue and white fringed Opry outfit to the glimmering sequined gown worn for her Carnegie Hall appearance.

Although she will never be replaced, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline is a loving tribute to her spirit and a celebration of the music of her life.

Tickets are $20 Reserved, $15 General Admission, $10 Student and can be purchased at the door, or in advance at the Baxley-Appling County Chamber of Commerce, on the ACAC Facebook Store, or by contacting The Arts Council of Appling County at applingarts@gmail.com or 912-278-2772.
