The Polls Are Open for Alhambra's Summer Show

 

While it’s typically always a family-friendly environment at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining, the summer show annually provides slightly lighter fare for those on Summer break.  Shows like Cinderella and Willy Wonka have been embraced by the young and the young at heart, driving a little extra youthful energy into the nation’s longest running professional dinner theater.  This season – the Alhambra’s 45th! – it is the patrons who will pick the summer show and polls are now open (and it’s only a small coincidence that 2012 happens to be an election year).

A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline Starts Feb 8th

 

Seven times Gail Bliss and her show about Patsy Cline’s story, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, has sold out the Alhambra.  Starting February 8, as a command performance, the show will return for the eighth and the final time for Gail Bliss. Chosen from over 600 hopefuls in 1994 to originate the role of Patsy in the initial touring production of “A Closer Walk,” singer-songwriter Gail Bliss has made a name for herself all over North America for her work in this role.  “A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline” is estate approved - one of only two select productions to be sanctioned by the Patsy Cline Estate managed by Charlie Dick, Patsy Cline's husband.  Dick said of Patsy, “she’s the best I’ve ever seen.”
