Showbiz Christchurch presents The Saunders & Co 2021 Season of
Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story – CANCELLED

Wed 22 September - Sat 2 October 2021

** EVENT CANCELLED**

Dear Ticket Holder,

With great disappointment, Showbiz Christchurch has announced the cancellation of their forthcoming production of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story from Sept 22 to Oct 2, 2022 at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

In order for the production to go ahead, Christchurch must be in Covid Level 1. At this point, the Producers are not confident enough that this will be the case in time, nor do they have the ability to move the show to alternative dates later this year.

This is extremely disappointing for all the cast, crew and creative team involved in the show who have worked so hard to get the show on stage.

All ticket holders will be refunded in full, and once ticket sales open for their next planned production (Matilda in April 2022), all purchasers will be offered an exclusive presale for that season. We hope for this to be available in early October.

Tickets purchased online by credit or debit card (including Afterpay) will be refunded in full (including ticket insurance premium, if relevant).

Patrons should allow up to 30 working days for the refund to appear in their account. There is no need to contact us. If your credit or debit card has been permanently closed/cancelled or the card has expired, please supply us with updated bank details here in order to process your refund.

Patrons who purchased tickets at an Agency will receive a full refund to a bank account, upon the provision of bank account details. You can provide these details here.

Please note for PCI compliance reasons we cannot accept credit card details via email. Please only provide bank details, or request a call back to provide credit card details. Please note there is a delay in response times.

Your continued support and understanding is appreciated.


Showbiz Christchurch is very excited to announce its return to the Isaac Theatre Royal in September with Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story!
Seen by over 22 million people worldwide, this show is not to be missed as Buddy sings his way through two hours of the best rock ‘n’ roll songs ever written.
This exhilarating show follows Buddy Holly from his first recording contract through to his move to New York, to his final legendary performance at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.
In 1959, the man who changed the face of popular music tragically died in a plane crash aged just 22. Now Buddy tells the story of the three years in which he became the world’s top recording artist with a show that features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Not Fade Away’, ‘Rave On’ and ‘Raining In My Heart’.
Buddy has had audiences on their feet in every corner of the globe and now “The World’s Most Successful Rock ‘n’ Roll Musical” is back and ready to explode onto the stage in a toe-tapping, hand-clapping extravaganza! 

Dust off your dancing shoes for a night to remember!
