    aspens abound. Babbling Gore Creek

    annie Garrett created and stars as Patsy DeCline (not to be

    confused with a woman with a name very

    similar to hers) in a tongue-in-cheek spoof

    of country music. Through monologues,

    parody songs and country musics all-time

    favorite chart toppers, Patsy pays tribute

    to all the big-haired country music queens

    who came before her. She spurs the

    crowd to laughter with hysterical tales of

    her many husbands, her endless hit albums and her wild adventures on the road.

    The Patsy DeCline Show is a glorious comedy romp, respondent with glittering

    costumes, sparkles, spangles and a wig as big as tumble-weed.

    Garrett, as Patsy, is backed by her incredible, 5-piece pedal-steel driven kick-butt

    country band. Patsy and the band will delight you as they rip and roar their way

    through classics by Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Ernest Tubb,

    Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and many more.

    Patsy always gets the audience rolling in the aisles with her irreverent take on all

    country fans hold sacred. Grown men have been known to cry with laughter

    when Patsy pokes fun at subjects ranging from plastic surgery, love and

    marriage, to re-hab and Elvis Presley. Filled with Patsys hysterical antics,

    parody songs and audience participation, this is the perfect show to lighten the

    mood and have fun!
