Back by popular demand, “Always…Patsy Cline,” starring Erica Hansen and Toni Byrd, will close out the season at Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre May 7-23.

Throughout the show Hansen and a live band will perform 27 of Patsy Cline’s songs as they are blended into the heartfelt, true story of a rare friendship between Patsy and a devoted fan. The original two-woman show was written and directed by Ted Swindley. Cline, who died in a 1963 plane crash at age 30, has been called one of the most influential, successful and acclaimed female vocalists of the 20th Century.

From May 7-23, there will be evening performances at 7:30PM, Thursday-Saturday, and at 2 p.m. each Saturday. Tickets are $14-$20. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 801-957-3322 or visit http://www.the-grand.org.

The Grand Theatre is a 1,100-seat venue located at Salt Lake Community College’s historic South City Campus, home of the innovative, state-of-the-industry Center for Arts and Media at 1575 South State Street in Salt Lake City. The Grand was chosen by Sundance Institute to be a screening venue during the 2015 Film Festival. The theatre dates back to the 1930s when it was part of South High School, which SLCC purchased in 1989, a year after the high school closed. The Grand began offering productions that year and has, with great care and expense, retained its Depression-era charm and attraction while also incorporating the latest technology in the performing arts. Every season, the Grand is host to award-winning theatre and dance productions and concerts that attract arts enthusiasts from all along the Wasatch Front.
