One of the biggest box-office hits and critical successes in the history of Sierra Madre Playhouse was its 2015 production of the musical Always….Patsy Cline. Now, the Playhouse is bringing back that show’s dynamic star and musical director, reuniting them for an extraordinary concert entertainment, A Patsy Cline Holiday Concert.
Cori Cable Kidder returns as the Patsy Cline character, singing a cavalcade of country classics (Walkin’ After Midnight; Crazy) and holiday hits (Jingle Bell Rock, White Christmas). The two-hour event of toe-tapping tunes is just right for a memorable holiday show.
Cori Cable Kidder was born in Arkansas and graduated from Ouachita Baptist University. Her numerous musical theatre credits include roles in Pump Boys and Dinettes (at Sierra Madre Playhouse); Hello, Dolly!; The Full Monty; The Producers; Titanic; Chicago; Anything Goes; Mame; Damn Yankees: and so much more. She is also a choreographer.
Sean Paxton is Sierra Madre Playhouse’s favorite musical director. His previous shows at Sierra Madre Playhouse include Always…Patsy Cline; Pump Boys and Dinettes; Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!); Dames at Sea; and The Marvelous Wonderettes. He also composed original music for our productions of Deathtrap and Stuart Little. A graduate of USC School of Music, he is an ASCAP Award-winning composer.
There will be a 4-piece band.
