Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

January 10 - February 9, 2020

G.K. Hardt Theatre

by Alan Janes
Directed by DJ Salisbury

Buddy Holly’s amazing story and highlights of his career—in just two hours!

"Buddy motors along with a gee-whiz innocence…”  — Dan Hubert, Atlanta Journal

“Golden oldies pounded out the way they used to be.”  — Frank Rich, New York Times

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 airwaves, until his tragic death less than two years later on the “Day the Music Died.” 

Starring Kyle Jurassic*, as Buddy Holly, the show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits, including “That’ll be the Day,” “Peggy Sue,” and “Oh, Boy.”

Back in the early 1950s, Buddy got together with a drummer, a bass player and a rhythm guitarist (played in our production by Nick Ambrosino, Engin Yesilyemis, and Steve Lasiter) and formed The Crickets. Lubbock, Texas had never seen anything like it. His twangy delivery and hard rock rhythms took the world by storm.
