To round out the summer 2011 season Interlakes Summer Theatre will bring back popular audience favorite The Buddy Holly Story, a musical revue based around the songs of Buddy Holly. Nathan Riley will be reprising his role as Buddy Holly and Jason Burrow will be reprising his role as The Big Bopper.
Riley reflects on his first experience with doing Buddy Holly Story four years ago “The experience was heightened by the fact that Nancy was able to bring in so many talented and versatile actor/musicians to back me up and actually make me look better than I actually am. Brian Feehan’s sharp fast pace direction of the piece was also an amazing addition to the whole experience.” He continued by saying “Coming back to reprise the production is going to be a joy ride. I already know the songs so I can leave that stress behind me and really dig in deep to the heart of the character and hopefully bring this musical legend back to life for a week in August.”
The Buddy Holly Story returns for one week only August 16-21st at Interlakes Summer Theatre located at 1 Laker Lane in Meredith. Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday at 2:00 and Sunday at 7:00pm. This show will have you singing and dancing in the aisles. It’s not to be missed!
