Tiffany Hill Lands Role!

Tiffany Hill has been singing since she was 5 years old and has been a Patsy Cline fan from the beginning. In 1997 when she was 15-years-old, she auditioned for the role of Patsy in “Always, Patsy Cline” at Macon Little Theatre. She wasn’t quite ready then, but she remained a Patsy Cline fan and an admirer of Angie Freeman who played the role for the next 12 years. Well, she is ready now and her dream to play the role of Patsy Cline has come true. Tiffany will be singing 20 Patsy Cline hits in Macon Little Theatre’s production of “A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline” which will run from May 9 – 18.
