The Buddy Holly Story

Closed February 18, 2018

Rave On with this classic jukebox musical

Why See The Buddy Holly Story?

Oh Boy!

Buddy Holly's life may have been cut tragically short, but there's no doubt, that during his short, dazzling career, he changed rock 'n' roll forever. One of the most enduring shows in musical theatre history, The Buddy Holly Story charts the singer's life and times, from his humble beginnings as a bespectacled unknown in Lubbock, Texas, and through to his brief moment in spotlight.

Written by Alan Janes, this jubilant jukebox musical takes you right back to the electrifying rock 'n' roll scene of the 1950s, and contains a huge number of Holly's greatest hits (all played live by the band on stage!). Expect to hear 'Peggy Sue,' 'Everyday,' 'That'll be the Day,' 'Rave On,' and many more.
