The Devonport Town Hall Theatre has been given the official all clear to stage larger-scale musicals and productions with 75% capacity, defined health and safety provisions around seating distances, the wearing of masks, and entry and exit provisions.

Don’t miss the first musical of the year – Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story.

Buddy is the account of a rock and roll legend, covering the three years from his transition from Country and Western, to his tragic departure from the world’s music scene. Following the rise and rise of Buddy Holly and the Crickets, and then later Buddy as a soloist, this musical tribute contains some 26 classic songs from the late 1950s.

Directed by Sid Sidebottom, with music direction by David Turner and Bronwyn Darvell, Buddy showcases 25 sensational actors, singers and musicians from across the north of the State.

Information Session – “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story” – in 2021

An information session for those wishing to audition for Devonport Choral Society’s 2021 production of BUDDY: THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY will be held at Forth Primary School Performing Arts Centre, Wilmot Road on Sunday 11 October.  The session will start at 2pm.

The information session will be a great opportunity to meet the Production Team, find out more about the show and get some tips on what the Team will be looking for at auditions.

The production will be directed by Sid Sidebottom with vocal direction by Bronwyn Darvell, musical direction by David Turner and Simon McNeair.

BUDDY will require a musically-talented cast of 15 players to act out multiple roles in the life of Buddy Holly, as well as a small band to join the cast in presenting and playing the dynamic music of Buddy Holly and his contemporaries. Anyone thinking of auditioning or wishing to find out more should attend.

No bookings for auditions will be taken prior to the information session and additional information is not available until then.  Auditions will be held 23 – 25 October, at the same venue. Auditions are by appointment only.

BUDDY: THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY will be performed at the paranaple arts centre (Town Hall Theatre) in May 2021.
