This fabulous production heated up Tyrone, near Atlanta, for five rocking weeks during early 2016!

Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story was a dream to produce and direct. From my very first correspondence with Rick Thorne, I knew we were in good hands. The materials were professionally presented and completely invaluable. Our audiences raved about the show like no other in our history. It quickly became one of our best-selling productions. This show is magical and will be magical for any theater’s box office. Our actors had a blast doing it, and we will definitely try to bring it back in a future season.”
— Mark Smith, Artistic Director & Owner, The Legacy Theatre (Atlanta), Georgia
