Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story

Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story

June 11 – July 4

A rock ‘n’ roll sensation, Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story tells the tale of the last three years of Buddy Holly’s life in which he became the world’s top recording artist. Featuring over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including “Peggy Sue”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Oh Boy”, “Not Fade Away”, “Everyday”, “Rave On”, “Maybe Baby”, “Raining In My Heart”, Ritchie Valens “La Bamba”, and the Big Boppers “Chantilly Lace”, this musical is guaranteed to get your feet tapping. Buddy takes you through the beginning of Buddy Holly’s musical career, creating his unique sound, becoming an inspirational songwriter and composer and climaxes with what in theatre must be one of the most exciting musical concerts of all-time. The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock ‘n’ roll continues to live on in Buddy.
