The short but remarkable career of the legendary rock and roller Buddy Holly is brought to life in Ballina Players’ latest musical production. Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is in rehearsal, with Jordan Stotter in the lead role.
Jordan (pictured here rehearsing in a Ballina music shop) is playing his first lead after long experience as a rock and blues performer and composer. He says Buddy Holly has always been a strong influence on him as he has on most contemporary rock musicians.
Buddy, directed by Paul Belsham and Warwick Binney, will be staged at the Players Theatre, Swift Street between November 16 and December 8, from Thursday to Saturday at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets are available at Just Funkin Music, phone 6686 2440.
Opening-night patrons will enjoy champagne and a light supper, and will be joined by the cast after the show.
