"The show you will never forget" - Daily Mail
"Joyous! I love this show" -Sunday Express
This sensational multi award-winning West End show first opened in 1989 and has been thrilling audiences around the world ever since. Now it triumphantly visits Bridlington Spa as part of its landmark 30th Anniversary Tour.
Forget feel good, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is FEEL GREAT! Experience the drama, passion and excitement as a cast of phenomenally talented actors and musicians tell Buddy Holly's story, from his meteoric rise to fame, to his final legendary performance at The Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.
The production will bring with it a multi-talented group of actor-instrumentalists, featuring Tom Berkeley and AJ Jenks (who alternate the role of Buddy Holly) Jordan Alexander, Miguel Angel, Joshua Barton, Harry Boyd, Joe Butcher, Cartier Fraser, Josh Haberfield, Rhiannon Hopkins, Sasha Latoya, Hannah Price and Ben Pryer. Together they will present a sensational two hours of live musical theatre ("an unashamed, rabble-rousing fiesta" – The Sunday Times), featuring over 20 of iconic rocker Buddy Holly's greatest hits, including such timeless classics That'll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy and Rave On.
Through its phenomenal run of productions and performances across five continents, Buddy has become known as 'The World's Most Successful Rock & Roll Musical' and will celebrate its 30th anniversary year embarking on a UK-wide tour in 2019 and 2020.
Writer and Producer Alan Janes says: "We can't wait to get back on the road for this special 30th anniversary UK tour of Buddy, with a new cast of hugely talented actors and musicians, who will be aiming to give audiences an unforgettable night at the theatre."
Although there have been many imitations, Buddy has stood the test of time. The show has inspired a generation of multi-million selling juke-box musicals, including Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You, and Jersey Boys, yet remains a true original and musical phenomenon.
BEFORE THE BEATLES, BEFORE THE STONES... ROCK & ROLL WAS BORN
