Brookside Theatre, Eastern Road, will soon be welcoming Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story, a toe-tapping, high-energy production next month.

Theatre manager Jai Sepple said: “This is certainly a story that deserves to be told.

“Buddy Holly did not inspire the awe and fan insanity that Elvis Presley did, nor was he able, like Chuck Berry, to stand above the fray and comment upon it.

“Although he was a star, he still sounded and looked like a regular guy.

“He was a brilliantly gifted and influential musician as well as an intriguing and complicated young man who remained true to himself in every aspect of his life.”

Almost 60 years ago, the man who altered the face of popular music was killed in a tragic plane crash that shocked the world - Buddy Holly was just 22 years old.

In only three brief years, he worked hard to write and record more than 100 songs.

His music was fresh and exciting and spoke to a generation.

This dynamic, heart-rending and unforgettable musical immortalises Buddy’s all too brief life and tells the story of the three years in which he became one of the world’s most popular recording artists.

From classic hits such as That’ll Be The Day and Oh Boy, to Peggy Sue and Raining in my heart, the show will be jam-packed with some of your all-time favourite Buddy Holly tunes.

Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story will be performed at the Brookside Theatre from Tuesday, July 3 to Saturday, July 7 at 8pm, with matinee performances at 2pm and ticket prices starting at £18.
