(repeats April 16-17, 23-24)….C.A.T.S. Theatre Production: “Men are Dogs” - Doctor Cecelia Monahan is a family therapist who runs a support group for single and divorced women who are trying to come to grips with the way they are treated by the various men in their lives. One member of her group only dates police officers while another had a boyfriend who, unbeknownst to her, was a bank robber. As she listens to the complaints of her group her eavesdropping mother, who lives upstairs from her home office, constantly plagues with unwanted advice on everything from cooking to dating. Cecelia is not above employing some rather unorthodox methods in therapy. She hires a young bartender/actor to interact with her group. Role playing, however, can be quite dangerous in Dr. Monahan's group therapy as a hostile cadre of angry woman beats the unsuspecting bartender senseless. Written by Joe Simonelli and directed by Peter Contreras II. Adult subject matter, parental discretion is advised. Tickets: $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors. Call (806) 702-0501 for reservations. CATS Playhouse, 2405 34th St; doors open at 7 p.m. and performance at 7:30 p.m.

pril 9-10…."Always Patsy Cline" -
HELD OVER! More than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963, this production has a true Texas connection. The show is based on a true story about Cline’s (Terri Caldwell) friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger (Jane Prince Jones), who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as "Crazy", "I Fall to Pieces", "Sweet Dreams" and "Walkin' After Midnight"…22 songs in all! The show’s title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS... Patsy Cline.” Don’t miss your chance to experience Terri Caldwell’s beautiful rendition of Patsy Cline and Jane Prince Jones’ uncanny comical wit of Louise in this fabulously produced production! Only one weekend left! Get your tickets now! Tickets: $25. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Avenue; 7:30 p.m.
