Buddy Returns: A Buddy Holly Tribute is a musical revue featuring the musical hits by Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens

These three performances are a special insert to our regular season and they are designed to raise funds for Lakewood programs. Come join us for a fun evening enjoying the music of the 50s. Don't forget your poodle skirt and rolled up t-shirt!

The evening features Matthew McClure as Buddy Holly, Matthew Snyder as Ritchie Valens, and Eric Furuheim as the Big Bopper. Accompanying them will be a select group of amazing backup singers and musicians including Kyle Jurassic on guitar, Markus Kamp on drums and Kyle Lahr on bass.

On the opening night, Thursday, August 16, join us in the courtyard for a reception featuring 50s food and beverages at 6:00 PM. Performance will begin at 7:30 PM on the Headlee Mainstage. Prizes awarded for best dressed! Tickets for the opening reception/show are $75 per person. Net proceeds benefit Lakewood programs!
