Producer- Adrienne Murphy “I have been involved with musicals for the past 14 years but Buddy was the one show I always wanted to do. It’s a brilliant story and the music is amazing. I have been so lucky that all the people involved feel the same way that I do, that we really want to pay tribute to Buddy Holly a Rock’n’Roll icon. Pieta House is for me the natural recipient for the proceeds – like so many people in Wexford I have lost a loved one to suicide, Phillip who was my cousin and my best friend this show is dedicated to him and the rest as they say will just be Rock ‘n’ Roll.
This joyous production will be performed by an amateur cast. The purpose of this production is to raise funds for Pieta House. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Pieta House.
