Theatre adds extra Rhinestone Cowgirl matinee

ORANGEVILLE - Rhinestone Cowgirl: A Tribute to Dolly Parton, starring Leisa Way and The Wayward Wind, has become such a runaway hit that Theatre Orangeville has added an extra 3pm matinee performance on Sept. 25.

Much loved for her Patsy Cline tribute concerts, Way literally erupts onto the stage in a flurry of feathers, fringe and bejewelled finery.

The one-liners and commentaries Way delivers throughout the Tribute - “You folks paid a lot to come here tonight, and frankly I need the money. It costs a lot to look this cheap” - are entertaining and revealing.

Rhinestone Cowgirl sold out 22 performances in May when it opened at Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg and has already sold out the Sunday matinee performance at Theatre Orangeville.

The real magic lies in hearing Way sing Dolly’s songs. Backed up by a terrifically talented band that includes Bruce Ley, Dave Wilson, Randall Kempf (Kenny Rogers), Kim Ratcliffe and Aaron Solomon (Porter Wagoner), Way performs hits from every era of Parton’s career, including; 9 to 5, I Will Always Love You, Jolene, Two Doors Down, Here You Come Again, Coat of Many Colours, Islands in the Stream and Why’d You Come In Here Looking Like That. 

When the band unplugs their instruments and joins Way downstage for an acoustic section, this musical moment invokes a timeless feeling.   

This is a show that draws audiences in for a great night of fun and entertainment. Don’t miss this spectacular tribute of the rags to riches “rhinestone” cowgirl, Dolly Parton. 

Rhinestone Cowgirl: A Tribute to Dolly Parton plays at Theatre Orangeville on Sept. 23, 24 and 25 at 8 pm, Sept. 25 at 3 pm and Sept. 26 at 2 pm. 

Tickets can be purchased on-line at or by calling the Theatre Orangeville box office at 519-942-3423.
