Audition dates set for 'Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story'



Muskogee Little Theatre announced that auditions for “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story” are scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. (Invitation-only callbacks are at 7 p.m.) The play calls for a large cast of adult men and women. The show will be directed by Nick Sweet.

The 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. The show follows Buddy’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 be cheering for more, with such 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.” This joyous celebration of a musical legend has been seen by more than 20 million people across the globe.
