Magnus Theatre Announces Holdover for A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline

Magnus Theatre Announces Holdover for A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~~  September 9, 2020  (LSN)  A soaring demand for tickets to Magnus Theatre’s outdoor show has prompted the company to extend the run for an additional weekend of performances.

A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline was originally scheduled to run for 12 performances from September 3rd to September 13th, but the holdover means that the show will now run for five additional performances, from Friday, September 18th through Sunday, September 20th.

“The show was sold out before it opened,” says Magnus Theatre Artistic Director Thom Currie. “The maximum capacity for each show is 100, so we hope adding these extra performances will provide an opportunity for folks who haven’t yet had a chance to see the production.”

A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, written by BC playwright Dean Regan, is set during a 1963 radio broadcast celebrating Patsy Cline’s rise to country music stardom in the 1950s and early 60s.

Audience reception has been overwhelmingly positive, says Currie.

“The local talent is incredible, and people are really enjoying the music, but it’s this singular experience of live theatre that people have really missed, and we’re so privileged to be able to offer this again here in Thunder Bay,” he says.

Tickets go on sale September 9th.  Tickets are $80 for up to two seats in one physically distanced circle. Seats are expected to go fast and can be purchased online or by phoning the Box Office at 807.345.5552 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm Tuesday to Saturday. In-person walk up sales are available from 5:00pm to 6:00pm Tuesday to Saturday from the temporary Box Office outside Magnus Theatre. For more information, please visit
