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!'

A clever comedy about the power of the written word

Playwright Theresa Rebeck | Director Kirsten Page

There's only one thing harder than writing your first novel. Letting him read it.

Set in present-day New York City, Seminar follows four young writers — Kate, Martin, Douglas, and Izzy — and their professor, Leonard. Each student has paid Leonard $5,000 for a ten-week writing seminar to be held in Kate's Upper West Side apartment. As tensions arise and romance falls, they clash over their writing, their relationships, and their futures.

Seminar is the provocative new comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck.

Pillow Talk

A story of undying love

Written & directed by Andy Payne


Henrietta has lived her life to the full, scared of nothing except perhaps of not being herself. After an unexplained hospitalisation, she finds herself facing an uncertain future and a loss of the dignity and control she so values. She has some support from her distracted daughter, and understanding from her son, an aspiring Member of Parliament who lives twelve thousand miles away in Melbourne, but it is her husband who is under pressure to keep the promise he made 30 years ago in a hotel bedroom and save Henrietta from her worst nightmare.

Pillow Talk is a tragic comedy about life, love and the promises we make. Set in a hospital, it references the Victorian Assisted Dying legislation and choices we make when faced with a terminal prognosis. 

Pillow Talk will play at Beaumaris Theatre from 16 - 31 August, 2019.


'History is littered with the sacrifices of lovers but would you do just anything for someone that you love? I wrote Pillow Talk to be entertaining. It is a window into the lives of a happily married couple and their family, at a time of crisis. But can we really be asked to keep the promises made in the first flushes of romance? Pillow Talk is both funny and thought provoking. It is a conversation everybody needs to have.'

- Andy Payne, Pillow Talk Director
