• Extended through October 30!

    Houston housewife Louise Seger first
    heard Patsy Cline in 1957 on the Arthur
    Godfrey show and became an instant fan.
    The two met before a 1961 concert,
    struck it off immediately, and spent all
    night chatting in Louise's kitchen.
    After that night, they kept up an active
    pen-pal relationship. On the night of
    Patsy's death in a 1963 plane crash,
    Louise reminisces and Patsy drifts in and
    out singing 27 of the songs that made
    her so beloved. Sweet Dreams, indeed.

  • A Christmas Memory | Opens Nov. 27th

    “If you're in a 'bah, humbug' mood this holiday season, A Christmas Memory may
    be just the remedy…it is an entertaining and heartwarming theatrical work that is just
    PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS.” San Jose Mercury News

    Los Angeles Premiere

    Sure to delight the entire family, Truman Capote’s enchanting Depression-era story
    springs to life in this big-hearted musical treat. A wistful memoir of cherished youth,
    it chronicles the 1930s friendship of a shy boy, Buddy, and his eccentric cousin Sook
    —misfits who launch kites, haunt speakeasies, and mail fruitcakes to everyone from
    Jean Harlow to President Roosevelt! A Christmas Memory celebrates friendship, the
    simple pleasures of life and the joy of giving.

Thank you to Mike Skiles of Texas Family Musicals for introducing me to Patsy all those years ago. Robert: thank you for giving me this opportunity." www.coricablekidder.com

We so proud of the recognition both Cori Cable Kidder and John Prosky have gotten - our first two nominations EVER.  John for the lovely work he did in A Walk in the Woods earlier this year and Cori for the beautiful work she is still doing in Always...Patsy Cline.  It's unfortunate that audiences won't be able to see John's work but they can still see Cori's through October 30 at the Playhouse.  Congratulations too, to all of the designers and actors who are SMP alums who were nominated for work they did at other theaters this season.  We are so proud that you have brought your talents to our stage and look forward to the next project we do together."
