ABOUT COURTNEY SHAYNE

Courtney Shayne Karl is a long-time friend of 'the stage' and has been performing for audiences for over 18 years.  A native to the Capital Region of New York, she has been seen in several local community productions, including those of Park Playhouse Inc., Capital Repertory Theater, The Schenectady Light Opera Company and Albany Civic Theater.  She has also performed with The Little Theater of Fall River in Massachusetts, as well as with the Theater Harrisburg Company and Hershey Playhouse in Pennsylvania.  
Courtney has been recognized throughout the Northeast for her theatrical talent and vocal abilities.  She holds awards from both Schenectady Light Opera Company and TANYS (Theater Association of New York State).  After graduating from Penn State University, Courtney took on yet another role - bringing Patsy Cline's story and songs back to life.  Having had a lifelong affinity for Miss Patsy's music, with a nudge from her grandfather, Courtney has evolved into one of the finest impersonators performing today and has been recognized nationally for her appearances.    

Courtney resides in the Capital Region of New York with her husband and two spirited young sons and enjoys a career in long-term care when she ISN'T wearing her cowboy boots.
