Buddy charts the story of the rock and roll icon Buddy Holly and features all his greatest hits

Pick Me Up Theatre

Wednesday 5 August to Wednesday 12 August 2015

Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when That’ll Be The Day hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on The Day The Music Died. The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Everyday, Oh Boy, Not Fade Away, Rave On and Raining In My Heart, plus Ritchie Valens’ La Bamba and the Big Bopper’s Chantilly Lace.

The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy.

The original London production ran for more than 5,000 performances, making it one of the longest-running West End musicals

Pick Me Up Theatre

Thursday 13 August to Saturday 15 August 2015

November 21, 1963. On the night before their deployment to Vietnam three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, the unassuming and idealistic waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet, she rewrites the rules of the game and opens his eyes to what really matters in life.

Based on the 1991 movie of the same name starring River Phoenix, Dogfight premiered and was nominated for 5 Outer Critics Circle and 2 Drama Desk Awards.

Easily the most delicate, surprising, musically satisfying score since Spring Awakening - TimeOut New York

Music and lyrics by Justin Paul and Benj Pasek
