Centerstage Theatre in Federal Way presents "Foolin' Around With Patsy Cline," a tribute to the legendary country music star, for one night only Sept. 8.

Decades after her untimely death, Patsy Cline remains the Queen of Country Music. Sometimes sassy, sometimes sultry, always toe-tapping, this hit-filled tribute to an All-American treasure includes such memorable songs as "I Fall To Pieces," "She’s Got You," "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," "Honky Tonk Angels," "Faded Love," "Come On In," "Strange," "Heartaches," "You Belong To Me" and "Lovesick Blues."

"Foolin’ Around With Patsy Cline" is the first in a series of tribute concerts throughout the Centerstage Theatre's 2012-2013 season, created by David Duvall, Centerstage resident music director. Under the umbrella of his company, Purple Phoenix productions, Duvall has assembled a series that also celebrates the talents of Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Lena Horne and The Supremes.

Featuring as Patsy Cline is Meg McLynn (, who is well known to Centerstage audiences for her portrayal of Mrs. Walker in "Tommy" and as the Blue Fairy in the highly-acclaimed production of "Pinocchio." McLynn is a BFA Graduate of Columbia University and has been seen at theaters throughout the United States as an accomplished actor and singer, appearing locally in such diverse companies as Seattle Opera and Live Girls!
