Sponsored by Cultural Arts Committee

at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, performance at 8:00 pm

America’s own Buddy Holly is often cited as the single most influential creative force in early rock n’ roll who paved the way for the next generation of legends (including Elvis, The Stones, Dylan, and The Beatles). This Broadway musical (which ran in London for 22 years) follows his meteoric rise to fame from his humble country music roots to the top of the charts and his untimely death in 1959, at the age of only 22.

You’ll hear all the Golden Oldies that will have you on your feet and rocking in the aisles: Peggy Sue, That’ll Be the Day, Raining in the Aisles, Not Fade Maybe Baby, Ritchie Valens’ La Bamba and the Big Bopper’s Chantilly Lace.

Tickets are limited to the 54 passenger bus, so get your reservations in early. And please... if you bought a ticket, and find you cannot make it, call the office (732)356-5071 to see if there's a wait list and allow someone on the wait list to purchase your ticket.
