In 1957 a young guitar player changed the face of popular music forever. In two years’ time this young man with glasses became the world’s top recording artist. Some of the songs that became hits include “Peggy Sue”, “Rave On”, “Maybe Baby”, “La Bamba”, and “Chantilly Lace”. Buddy Holly’s brief life is immortalized in this dynamic and heart-rending stage show. It’s a celebration of the man, his music and life, that catches that unique mixture of innocence, determination, humor and charm that was Buddy Holly. Witness his story explode onto the stage in a toe-tapping, hand-clapping extravaganza, which will have you ‘up and dancing in the aisles’!
BUDDY – THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY will be interpreted for the hearing impaired on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:30pm.
