If you love all the music from the good old days, then you will want to make sure that you do not miss our own local singer, Brendan Peyper in the title role (who you may also recall has just won Tropika Island of Treasure recently) and who is clearly having a very good year, may I add!
Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, has been enjoyed by millions of people around the world and tells the story of the tragically short life of Buddy Holly, who along with his high-school friends the Crickets, turned country music upside down to create some of the best rock ‘n’ roll songs ever written.
Join in Buddy’s frustrations through his first recording contract; the excitement America felt when ‘That’ll Be The Day’ hit #1; his naïve determination to be the first white act to play the Apollo Theatre, Harlem; his whirlwind romance and marriage to Maria Elena; concluding with the ill-fated ‘Winter Dance Party’ tour of the Midwest and what in theatre must be one of the most incredible musical concerts of all-time.
Don’t miss out, this is your chance to see Buddy sing his way through two hours of the best rock ‘n’ roll you’ll ever hear!
