Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story is going to return to Spokane Civic Theatre for encore performances next summer. The cast has committed to reviving the musical that the Civic sold out (before its current production of White Christmas, which also sold out).
So, sure, it's still nearly eight months away — but call 509-325-2507 soon, because (obviously) tickets for this show tend to sell extremely well. And can anybody remember an entire main-stage, large-cast musical around here being so popular that it was revived months later?
See our 9/29/10 review here. Tickets: $30; $28, seniors; $20, students and children. Dates are July 22-31, 2011, on Thurs-Sat 7:30 pm and Sun 2 pm. This summer production is billed as a fundraiser to help the Civic increase the height of its backstage fly space.
