SWEET DREAMS, THE MUSIC OF PATSY CLINE Returns to The Triple Door 9/11
Seattle Theatre Group (STG) presents SWEET DREAMS, THE MUSIC OF PATSY CLINE at Rialto Theater in Tacoma on Wednesday, September 8 (on what would be Clines 78th birthday) at 7:30pm and two shows at the Triple Door in Seattle on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at 7:00pm (all ages) and 9:30pm (21+).
After two consecutive years of sold out performances, critically-acclaimed SWEET DREAMS is a celebration of iconic singer, Patsy Cline and features the Northwest's favorite singer/songwriters: Star Anna and The Laughing Dogs, Rachel Flotard (of Visqueen), Kristen Ward, Kim Virant (of Lazy Susan), and Victoria Wimer-Contreras.
An all-male house band backs the vocalists, and consists of Seattle area's hottest musicians including: Leif Andersen (guitar), Chris Friel (drums), Robert Michell (piano), Jeff Rouse (bass), Kevin Suggs (petal Steel), and Gary Westlake (guitar).
Creating a Patsy Cline tribute was a longtime goal for Debra Heesch, STG's Special Evens and Booking Associate and SWEET DREAMS producer. "I like to come up with shows that I can spend more time and energy to develop more fully," said Heesch. "SWEET DREAMS showcases these women in a different light as opposed to their own music, and gives them the opportunity to connect to new audiences."
