Full Character Breakdown

Based on the true story of Patsy Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger who became an avid fan and personal friend. Great Patsy Cline hits include Walkin’ after Midnight, Back in Baby’s Arms, Sweet Dreams, Blue Moon of Kentucky, Your Cheatin’ Heart, Crazy and more!

Note: Both roles in this show will be cast under an AEA contract

Patsy Cline
mid 20s to 30. The legendary country singer who died while still very young in a plane crash in the early 1960’s. Because the show is based on a true story and Patsy is an iconic figure in Country Music who had a most distinct and recognizable sound, role requires an excellent singer/actress who can look and sound as much like her as possible. Recreating her glottal, trill and yodel-like delivery of her many hits including Crazy, Sweet Dreams, I Fall to Pieces and others is essential to the successful portrayal of this role. Patsy was a warm, funny, vulnerable AND tough lady and the actress cast must be able to play those. Seeking excellent singer/actress with ability to mimic Patsy Cline’s vocal stylings and country accent. Starring role.

Louise Seger
45-60. A Texas housewife and fan of Patsy Cline. Overweight (on the chunky side) but not obese. Through a chance meeting, she becomes friends with her “favorite star” and the relationship continues until Patsy’s death. Louise is a tough, no-nonsense Texas gal who idolizes Patsy. Her delivery ranges from folksy to razor sharp and all in the idiom of a 1950’s Southern woman who is equally at home in the kitchen and out “honky-tonkin’!” This character is the driving force of the play as she performs numerous monologues and narrations between the live musical numbers performed by Patsy and the on-stage band. Excellent actress with great comic timing, good Texas dialect and ability to sing some duets with Patsy. Starring role. ESPECIALLY seeking and PREFER to cast a “name” for this role.
