Buddy Holly's music is timeless and this fact coupled with the enthusiasm of the performers have enabled us to bring you the Buddy Holly Story as it happened 50 years ago! During rehearsals we have come to admire the young man who relentlessly pursued his dream of "playing his music his way" and who took on the might of Decca Records and subsequently his manager to achieve his goals. As for his music, it is classic Rock 'n Roll and even if it was considered an evil and disruptive influence on young people when it first arrived on the scene, it remains as fresh and exciting now as it ever was. We have loved re-creating this unforgettable part of popular music history and hope that you wil sit back, let us roll back the years and join us as we "Rave On".
A performance of "Buddy - The Musical" was performed by the creative team behind Gatepost. This was mainly an adult cast with the young cast acting as stage hands and back-stage crew. The performances were held in the Derby Guildhall Theatre. Performances commenced at 7.30p.m. The show ran from Wednesday 28th November until Saturday 1st December.
