Buddy:  The Buddy Holly Story comes to town May 31 through June 23, 2019 and AARP members and their guests receive a $10 per adult ticket discount.  The discounted performances will be held at The Palace Theatre, 80 Hanover Street, in downtown Manchester.  Performances will be held at both 2:00 and 7:30 pm.

Buddy tells the story of Buddy Holly’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when That’ll Be the Day hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on The Day the Music Died.  The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including Peggy Sue, Everyday, Not Fade Away and many more!

The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of Rock & Roll, continues to live on in Buddy .

AARP members and their guests can purchase tickets online or by calling 603 668 5588.  Tickets can also be purchased at the box office.  To receive the $10 per adult ticket discount, use the code ACTIVE. *

Seen by over 22 million people around the world, Buddy will have you on your feet and “send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high” (The Boston Globe).
