Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story

by Alan Janes

Directed by Jerry Allen

The Buddy Holly Story

This May, the PTG is very excited to present Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story by Alan James at Showplace Performance Centre.

This legendary pioneer of rock and roll influenced, in so many ways, what followed his brilliant musical life. Even though his career lasted a mere 18 months before his untimely and tragic death, the popularity of his music continues even now, nearly 60 years after he burst onto the scene. The songs of this unique, bespectacled Texan came to a generation not through television but mostly through the medium of small, tabletop radios. And yet The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and countless other great music innovators have cited Buddy Holly as the greatest singular influence on their music.

See the story of his life and sing along to all the great tunes of Buddy Holly, as well as songs by The Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens and Dion and The Belmonts.
