The historic Ogunquit Playhouse's final production of its 80th anniversary season gets audiences dancing in their seats to the family-friendly, Tony Award–winning tunes of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story. Buddy hurls audiences face-first into the brief, enigmatic life of the iconic Texan who forever changed the sound of pop music and the size of fashionable bifocals. Focusing on the last three years of Holly's career, in which his fame skyrocketed, Buddy’s jukebox jumps with more than 20 show-stoppers such as “That’ll Be the Day” and “Peggy Sue.” Charismatic actor and singer Kurt Jenkins, founder of the alternative-rock band Skyway Spirits, makes his Ogunquit debut in the role of Buddy Holly.

Also taking the stage in his Playouse debut, Ryan Jagru steps into the shoes of Ritchie Valens for a rendition of “La Bamba” and Jayson Elliot performs the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace” to remind waiting handkerchiefs that Don McLean's sense of propriety wasn't the only casualty of “the day the music died.” Throughout the night, fans of music and musical theater will rejoice in Buddy’s melodious jaunt down memory lane, and audiences unacquainted with Buddy Holly may be surprised how much they enjoy music that was recorded in black and white.

Ogunquit Playhouse

When Broadway showman Walter Hartwig and his wife Maude opened the Ogunquit Playhouse in 1933, they likely never realized they were establishing a theatrical legacy. Then again, they might have had an inkling—from the very beginning, the playhouse hosted performances from luminaries including Ethel Barrymore, Bette Davis, and Walter Matthau. Even today it’s not unusual to see famous names and attached talents treading its historic boards, such as Stefanie Powers from Hart to Hart or Charles Shaughnessy from The Nanny. It’s all part of the theater’s mission to provide the best shows possible while promoting the local arts. Along with star-studded Broadway musicals, the stage hosts dance shows, children’s theater, and acting workshops for the next generation of spotlight-stealers.
