Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story
by Georgetown Palace Theatre
Jun. 27 - Aug. 02, 2014
Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story opens live at the Historic Palace Theatre in Georgetown on Friday, June 27, 2014, for a six-weekend run. Yes, we’re bringing it back – by popular demand! Join us for this amazing concert event on the Palace’s Springer Memorial Stage featuring over 20 of Buddy Holly's greatest hits played live on stage (by the actors themselves), including Peggy Sue, That’ll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Everyday, Maybe Baby, and Raining In My Heart. Also featuring musical portrayals of The Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens and more! The Buddy Holly Story, written by Alan Janes, is directed by Mary Ellen Butler, Artistic Director of the Palace. Benjamin Blaise made Palace history with his portrayal of Buddy Holly in the 2012 production, and now he and his authentic band are back! If you’re not dancing in the aisles, we know you’ll be wanting to!
The story of Buddy Holly is a modern-day American folk tale, known to all: On February 3, 1959, Buddy died in a tragic plane crash at age 22, a crash that also took the lives of The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. But Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story concentrates more on the terrific music he left us, this young man who changed the face of popular music. Now, at the Palace Theatre, you can soak up not only Buddy Holly’s music, but also the story of the three years in which he became the world’s top recording artist.
Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story is generously sponsored by St. David’s Georgetown Hospital, and the non-profit partner is The Georgetown Project. The Palace’s 2013-2014 All-Star Season has two very generous sponsors: HEB and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
