Tickets on sale for MLT’s ‘Buddy’


BOYNTON — Muskogee Little Theatre announced that tickets are now on sale for “Buddy — The Buddy Holly Story.”

Tickets may be reserved and purchased at Soundworld, 123 E. Okmulgee Ave., or by calling (918) 683-4901. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for students. Production dates are April 19-28. In anticipation of large audiences, MLT has added two additional performances for this show and recommends that tickets be reserved in advance, according to a media release. Tickets may also be available at the MLT if not sold out.

The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock ’n’ roll, rocks on in this popular tribute, according to the release. The show follows Holly’s meteoric rise to fame, from his humble country music roots to the top of the record charts and his untimely death in 1959. Audiences will hear rousing ’50s favorites as “Peggy Sue,” “Oh Boy,” “Maybe Baby,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “Raining In My Heart,” Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” and the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace.”

Muskogee Little Theatre’s production of “Buddy — The Buddy Holly Story” is sponsored by Muskogee Area Chamber of Commerce and The Oklahoma Arts Council.
