Ark Valley Players are excited to be back in production!
In August we’re welcoming Piper Leigh and Paula Steinbacher to the Burford Theatre stage as they reprise their roles in Always…Patsy Cline.
Legendary country singer, Patsy Cline, is played by local favorite Piper Leigh. Louise Seger – Texas housewife and fan, played by Paula Steinbacher, is sharing her memories of many years ago. Like her memories, Louise is timeless; stuck somewhere in the era of Patsy Cline’s short, but stellar, career. The action of the play takes place at Louise’ kitchen table and at various places from Patsy Cline’s career, including the Grand Ole Opry, The Arthur Godfrey Show, the Esquire Ballroom and a Houston radio station. The time is the past (circa 1957-63) to the present. David Andreas directs the cast, including five band members.
Performances are August 12, 13, and 14 at 7:30 PM (Doors open at 7PM)
Show only tickets $15 – Dinner/show tickets $30*
*Saturday only – Dinner at 6 PM (Show only tickets Saturday are balcony only)

Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig
Two Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to a prominent local businessman. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.
Tickets go on sale SOON, so please check back often!
