Then, kicking off 2023, Honky Tonk Angels, a country-hit musical written by Ted Swindley (Always… Patsy Cline) transforms Pendragon’s stage into a Nashville oasis filled with crowd favorite Country tunes. Playing during Winter Carnival February 1 thru 12, details and tickets can be found at:

Visit Pendragon Theatre during Winter Carnival and hear some of country’s greatest pop hits as three gutsy women leading unfulfilled lives decide to cut loose and board a bus headed for Nashville to pursue their dream of becoming country singers. Loads of twang and sass result in a feel-good mix of laughter, tears, and country pop favorites. “These Boots are Made for Walking,” “Stand by Your Man,” “Delta Dawn,” “9 to 5,” “Amazing Grace,” and “Harper Valley PTA” are just a few of the heart-thumpin’, foot-stompin’, country classics you’ll experience — with a live band on stage — for Honky Tonk Angels at Pendragon Theatre.

    I have attended Pendragon for several years now, usually making the entire season of offerings. Every single time — so far culminating in Muppets today — I have such a good time. Performances are fresh and energetic, entertaining from moment one right through to the final bow. Love it all. Your cast has shown its talent on alkl fronts. I’ll make them all.
