created by Ted Swindley
directed by Claude A. Giroux
music directors Gordon Roberts & Leigh Richards Stewart
costume design Tiffany Bishop
set design Michael Smith

starring Colleen Rae Lornie
Louise Porter and the

The phones just didn’t stop ringing after First Impressions Theatre’s production of Always…Patsy Cline last May. When asked, everyone was enthusiastically on board to remount the show this November and once that was announced the box office lit up again! Seven performances run November 10 to 19, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20 each, order online at our box office or call 604-929-9456.

“Always…Patsy Cline” is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. It is based on a true story about Cline’s friendship with a fan who befriended the star until her death. Complete with live band down-home country humour and true emotion, it includes many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight…27 songs in all.

Created by Ted Swindley, Directed by Claude A. Giroux, Music Directors Gordon Roberts and Leigh Richards Stewart, Costume Designer Tiffany Bishop, Set Design Michael Smith. Once again starring Colleen Rae Lornie, Louise Porter and the Bodacious Bobcats Band!

THE WHOLE STORY (almost)


THE WHOLE STORY (almost)

Part I & II of the Grandpa ‘n Me Trilogy
Sept 8- 17, 2016

WSPosterFirst Impressions Theatre is very proud to announce that it has teamed up once again with Seabrooke Entertainment to bring you The Whole Story (almost), Part I & II of the Grandpa ‘n Me Trilogy. Lovingly written by the same husband and wife team, we will revisit Grandpa on the family farm and then experience a timeless love story spanning Scotland and Canada through letters and diaries with the premier of In Grandma’s Time.
 We had a little taste a year ago of the gentle story of a grandfather raising his granddaughter. We saw her through her years from a very young girl to an adult. The story was engaging, often funny and full of heart. Audiences loved it and it was equated to walking right into the world of a Norman Rockwell painting.  It left us wanting to learn more about the family of that short story called Grandpa ‘n Me.
TICKETS: $20 adults – $18 seniors & students
