A CLOSER WALK WITH PATSY CLINE is set in a little country radio station in Virginia where the DJ reminisces about Cline’s tragically short but surprisingly rich career. With twenty of her best-known songs played by a live band, the show is a tribute to her spirit, a magical blend of theatre and music. Country and non-country fans of all ages will be charmed by the story and musical selections including “Crazy,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “I Fall to Pieces.”

When Ichabod Crane comes to town to be the new schoolmaster, he quickly learns about the many ghosts who haunt the area. None are as frightening as The Headless Horseman. No one dares to say the name lest he rise up to terrorize the people of Tarrytown. Like James Rana’s The Poe Mysteries that premiered last season at Ocean Professional Theatre Company, a cast of six play several roles to bring this haunting classic to life.
