Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at Town Theatre
With songs such as “Chantilly Lace,” Oh Boy,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Everyday,” “Ready Teddy,” “Not Fade Away” and “Rave On,” this is one toe-tapping show you’ll not want to miss.
Audiences will delight in seeing and hearing Midlands’ performers bring to life the tunes of Buddy Holly and the Crickets. The role of Buddy is played by Charlie Goodrich (Million Dollar Quartet) with Billy Bishop (Beauty and the Beast) and brothers Marshall and James Seezen as the Crickets. Bill LaLima (Big Fish) handles the role of the Big Bopper, Jessie Rivera (The Drowsy Chaperone) takes on the legendary Richie Valens and Lee Martin (Hairspray) blows the rafters off the roof as Marlena Madison. Other long-time Town favorites include Dell Goodrich (Beauty and the Beast), Kristy O’Keefe (Big Fish) and Caroline Quinn (member of the Town Teen Troupe).
The show runs Nov. 2-18 with an 8 PM curtain on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 3 PM curtain on Sundays. The show is directed by Hans Boeschen, with music direction by Lou Boeschen and choreography by Shannon Scruggs. Costumes will be provided by Jillian Carey with technical and lighting design by Danny Harrington.
