Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story
Written by Alan Janes
Director Debbie Keyt | Musical Director Rhonda Vaughan Choreographer Camilla Klesman
Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy's meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when 'That'll Be The Day' hit the airways until his tragic death less than two years on 'the day the music died'. The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly's greatest hits including 'That'll Be The Day', 'Peggy Sue', 'Everyday', 'La Bamba' and so many more.
The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy.

'I first saw Buddy- The Buddy Holly Story in 1991 and left the theatre on such an incredible high the like I had never experienced before. After the show I immediately booked to go and see it again to share the experience with a group of friends. I cannot wait to share Buddy's incredible story and of course his exceptional music with our Beaumaris Theatre audiences and know everyone will be in a rock 'n' roll frenzy!'
