The the Louisiana Hayride live stage show is making a stop at the SASCU Rec Centre Saturday, Nov. 17.

“If you’ve enjoyed shows one, two and three, you will be delighted with this ‘best of’ show that combines songs from all of the previous shows,” says Hayride creator Lori Risling. “If you’re new to the Louisiana Hayride live musical experience, this will be the perfect show to see for your first time.”

All the original characters are back, including Patrick Ryley as Hank Williams, Andrea Anderson as Patsy Cline, Adam Fitzpatrick as Elvis and Gil Risling as Roy Orbison.

In addition to their wonderful songs, you’ll love the other classic tunes in the show such as Crazy Arms by Ray Price, El Paso by Marty Robbins, Great Balls of Fire by Jerry Lee Lewis, and many, many more.

Rounding out the ensemble are musicians William Brookfield and Mike Melnichuk.

Lori will again provide interesting anecdotes about the original singers, such as Elvis, who was told he probably shouldn’t pursue a career in singing.

Tickets are available at Wearabouts on Alexander Street and Touch A Texas in the Mall at Piccadilly.
