The Arts Club presents Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at the Stanley Theatre on now until July 12, 2010.

It’s the world’s most successful rock ‘n’ roll musical and has been viewed by more than 20 million people across the globe.

“Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “Oh Boy,” “Not Fade Away”—the list of hit songs penned by Buddy Holly goes on and on. By his untimely death, the legend had already changed popular music forever.

Vibrant and celebratory, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story highlights the talent and passion that lives on in his music and continues to thrill audiences long after they dance out of the theatre.

Engagement: On now until July 11th, 2010
(12 shows already sold out)
Location: Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, 2750 Granville Street
Information: Arrangement with Alan Janes for Theatre Partners – By Alan Janes and Rob Bettinson

I have two tickets to give away for the performance May 27th and I also have a special dinner pairing to offer as well.

The winner of this prize will enjoy a four-course meal for two at West, a South Granville restaurant that recently won Gold for Best Service, Bronze for Restaurant of the Year, and Bronze for Best Last Course per Vancouver Magazine.

Dinner at West will be arranged for 5:00pm on the 27th so that the winner and their guest may enjoy their meal and then head across the street to see the musical at the Stanley.

To enter to win please leave a comment on this post. I’ll draw the winner Monday May 24th.

Update May 25th I drew the winner’s name randomly and it was… Lacy. Congratulations and have a fantastic night out! I’d like to thank everyone for sharing their stories and experiences, it was so interesting to read all the entries. Please do get some tickets for the show if you can, it will be amazing.

Fine print: The approximate value of the dinner for two is $150 (beverages & gratuity are additional).

    We already have a group of twenty-nine attending the June 26 performance – all of us in “Buddy” attire. We’re going for burgers and shakes – “SHAKE YER BURGY” – before the performance, just around the corner @ Vera’s. That’ll be the Day! by the time we get to the theatre!!

    I would love, though, to treat my “Peggy Sue” to a nice dinner out at the WEST. I would give the tickets to my son and his friend – or we (Peggy and I) would attend at the WEST in our “Buddy” attire and trip the light fantastic across the street for the performance!

    Pick me!!

  136. TomThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 4:09pm PDT

    My (just turned 9 on May 19) daughter loves the theatre. I’m taking her to 3 shows at the Children’s Festival during the Victoria Day Long Weekend. On May 15, she saw Shakespeare’s As You Like It at the Waterfront Theatre. In November 2009, she saw White Christmas at the Stanley, and two Carousel Theatre’s productions: Robin Hood and The Big League. In December 2009, she went to two – count ’em two – shows of the ballet The Nutcracker. Last summer, she saw both Theatre Under the Stars productions at the Malkin Bowl. Last May, while visiting Toronto, she saw The Jersey Boys (a musical about the life and times of Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons).
    I’m sure she would loooooove to see The Buddy Holly Story.

  137. HaliaThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 4:11pm PDT

  138. ShelleyThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 4:12pm PDT

    My wife and I saw “BUDDY” in London in 1998 and that was the highlight of our tour through London, it was that good. The British Open and Buddy made the trip almost perfect.

  180. AbbyThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:29pm PDT

    Would love this! Dinner and theatre, two of my favourite things. Heh. And some good music, to boot. Sounds like a fab evening.

  183. LyndaThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:44pm PDT

    Sounds like a great evening! I was so saddened when it came across the wire that Buddy Holly had been killed. I remember it like it was yesterday. When my high school sweetheart and I went to school dances, we always requested, Rave On, one of Buddy’s songs. What fun it would be to have a dinner date and see the show!

  184. Phil WhelanThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:46pm PDT

    This is exactly what I need for my 2nd wedding anniversary next week. Please make me the winner! 🙂

  185. GordonThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:49pm PDT

  186. DonnaThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:51pm PDT

  187. JaneThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:52pm PDT

    The perfect way to celebrate my husband’s birthday on the 27th!

  189. Jane WrightThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 5:58pm PDT

    This would be the perfect celebration evening for my husband’s birthday on the 27th!

  190. Bonnie Y.Thursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:09pm PDT

    I remember watching the movie about Buddy Holly’s life. It was such a sad story to see him die at such a young age and in such a tragic way.

  191. Bev DrombolisThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:12pm PDT

    I went to the show last week – took 5 other family members with me – we had a great time. I was dancing in the aisles and singing along. I would love to win a dinner out and go again. I will probably go at least once more anyway!! Thanks. Great Show!!!!!

  192. Michael CadeThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:16pm PDT

    have seen Zach several times with the Human Statues – a truly great performer – cannot wait to see him in this show!

  193. Irene SinclairThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:23pm PDT

    Can’t remember the last time I have eaten at a fancy restaurant and gone to a live fun show.
    This would be truly “Amazing” as Buddy Holly was one of my favourites !!!!

  194. Tanja TThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:26pm PDT

    The show was amazing. I know my friend would love it and I would love to see it again!

  196. SteveThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:28pm PDT

    Buddy Holly was probably the greatest of all rock n roll pioneers. If his life hadn’t been cut short, he surely would have surpassed Elvis in the history of rock n roll. To see this play would be incredible.

  197. TamaraThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:29pm PDT

    Looks great!

  198. KateThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:31pm PDT

  201. Roger MironThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:41pm PDT

    Holly is synonymous with Christmas. Sort of. So is mistletoe. Sort of! If I win it’ll be an early Christmas and I bet I’d get a kiss from my wife!

  202. RobynThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 6:42pm PDT

    Can’t wait to go to see the show!

  233. KathyThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 7:56pm PDT

    I had two tickets to go to the Buddy Holly Story, but I gave them away to friends as I had to go to the island to look after my mom who has been newly diagnosed with colon cancer. Now I am back and am available to go. I hope you really consider me.

  243. NicoleThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 8:55pm PDT

    I love Buddy Holly music!!
    Thanks for the offer~~

  244. Bill SadgroveThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 8:57pm PDT

    My wife and I met in the “just post” Buddy Holly era and we both loved his music. After approx. 40 years of marriage, during which time we had 3 kids, our youngest at 26 years of age, finally moved out of home last Saturday, 15 May 2010 and in so doing left us after all these years…”empty nesters”.

    We are now free, with some sadness, to renew old memories and start doing new “old” things. The Buddy Holly Story, with dinner, would coincide beautifully with our new freedom given his era was pretty much where we started out.

    Thank you…..Bill and Barbara

  245. JanetThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 9:08pm PDT

    West is the best and would love to see Buddy

  251. Leona GeallThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 9:58pm PDT

    Would LOVE to see this production!!!

  252. BethbThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 10:06pm PDT

    Our 20th wedding anniversary was last week and we both forgot! This would be a good celebration to make up for our lapsing memories!

  253. BillThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 10:11pm PDT

  260. Julie WThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 11:36pm PDT

    Wow! Living in the boonies aka Langley a night out on the town at West (Bon appetit) & the Sights & Sounds of The Arts Club’s Buddy Holly would be a night to remember.

  261. TriciaThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 11:39pm PDT

  262. janis lawrieThursday, May 20th, 2010 — 11:41pm PDT

    Wanted to see this performance then realized it was sold out, would love to take my Fiance to the show as she has acted in plays such as Chicago, etc, and an evening away from the kids would be awsome.

  265. CarrieFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:04am PDT

    Pick me! Pick me!

  266. Shanna SelingerFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:32am PDT

  268. Jean PalmerFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:35am PDT

    My son and daughter have seen this show already and they are ready to see it again!! Since I am 73 – it was during my time and I would very much enjoy going to see it and refreshing my memory about those now very innocent years which were quite daring at that time.

  269. SamFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:35am PDT

    Would love to see this show and have dinner at West!

  270. EmilyFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:44am PDT

    “Everyday” was one of the first songs our class learned to play on guitar in Gr. 7 by our drama/music teacher. I’ve heard such great things about this production of “The Buddy Holly Story”. I hope I win tickets. Thanks for the contest.

  271. LisaFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:51am PDT

    I’m trying to get my boyfriend to enjoy the theatre as much as I do, especially musicals. What better way than to start off with Buddy Holly? Please help so that he will get the bug and take me often 🙂

  272. ALFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 12:55am PDT

    Can’t wait!

  281. Sandy CrawfordFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 1:37am PDT

    Hi, What a great tribute to such a legend who’se life ended so soon. I’ve always loved his music, saw the movie & seen an impersonator, but have not seen the musical. I’d love to see the musical and i know a friend I would choose to come with me. We both could use a great night out like this about now.

    Thanks for all you do.


  282. SharylFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 2:23am PDT

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to the theatre and I miss it. I would love to see “Buddy”.

  283. jsFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 4:58am PDT

    Ooooh, it will be so exciting to win, as it is our 10th year anniversary. What a pleasant surprise it will be. “Buddy Holly”…WOW!, and to boot at one of the best theatres in Vancouver. The Stanley theatre is legendary, and how finer of a restaurant to be dining at “West”. One of Vancouver’s #1 restaurants. Hope to hear from you soon!

  284. SandraFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 7:18am PDT

    This sounds like the perfect night out before our baby arrives!

  285. John HoulihanFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 7:25am PDT

    Not for me; for her. The one who never enters, thus never wins. She’s my honey, and I’m certain that she will take me along 😉

    Dinner out would be enough to impress her. An evening hearing the music of childhood memories, and seeing Buddy brought alive on-stage, would be ‘simply the best’.

    …..and, I’d be a hero! Well, maybe not.

    Her name is Heather. Pretty as a flower, we’re lucky in love.

  286. Elizabeth JohnstonFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 7:28am PDT

    It would be awesome to win!

  287. SarahFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 7:41am PDT

    I would love to relive my youth with my grandaughter, who is an avid fan of buddy holly, the big bopper and richie valens. She sings along to american graffitti in the car when I am driving.

    It would be a great experience to spend a special occasion like this with her.

    Long live Buddy!!

    My 10 year old Daughter and I have started to go to the theater once a year. It is special night to us and I love to watch her face sparkle with excitment in awe of the actors and actressess. She now wants to learn to Act and Sing. This would be a vivacious night to share with her.

  299. JSFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 9:07am PDT

    4 course dinner at West – fantastic!

  300. AlanFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 9:58am PDT

    We first saw the “Buddy Holly Story in London (UK) in 1993. My youngest son was very interested in life at that time and refused to go so we went with the eldest. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance and our youngest has been regretting missing it ever since.

    Winning this contest would allow us to finally enjoy the performance with our son and he would be overjoyed.

    I hope that the performance in Vancouver is as good as the one in London.

  301. LorraineFriday, May 21st, 2010 — 10:00am PDT

    I’ve loved the music of Buddy Holly since I was a child. Also, West is a restaurant of which I have read excellent reviews but so far have only experienced it from the outside looking in. It would be great to win this package.

    I’d love to see this play @ the Stanley theatre. The last time there we took our daughter kara and her guy Scott to see Les Mis, Kara remember our first time seeing this play @ the Queen E when she was a pre-teen and was so excited to share this version with her guy and her parents (us). So thanks for the memories as that’s what life is made of.

    My 84 year old Dad is going to see it as a subscriber. He said he read the playlist and didn’t recognize a single song . . . what a waste! He didn’t offer to give up his ticket to me cause he’s going to the lecture with Red Robinson – who has suddenly become a contemporary of his. If I told him this 40 years ago . . !

  344. Greg RobertsSaturday, May 22nd, 2010 — 4:41pm PDT

  352. AdamSunday, May 23rd, 2010 — 9:16am PDT

    The same female star who was in ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ @ Queen Playhouse, performs in the Buddy Holly story. The last time I was at the Arts Club was 10 years ago & I was 17. What a perfect 10th year anniversary for me if I win. Bonus: I love B.H.’s music.

  353. ozvickijcSunday, May 23rd, 2010 — 9:22am PDT

    I need some inspiration about now. Music is the best way to connect and feel good with a Buddy.

  358. CarmenSunday, May 23rd, 2010 — 10:20am PDT

    Loved the show and so did my 69 yr old friend who reminisced that time of her life and the music that defined it 🙂 I also thought the singing was magnificent!

  359. Alice MungerSunday, May 23rd, 2010 — 11:11am PDT

    I am looking forward to Buddy Holly whether or not I win the tickets but am really looking forward to trying out the great food at the WEST. I have walked by and checked their menu on countless occasions but have never gone in. My fingers and toes are now crossed in anticipation!

  389. Charlie WalkerMonday, June 14th, 2010 — 10:05am PDT

    I have been a devoted fan of Buddy Holly since 1956, and, have strong memories of when his death was announced on the public address system in high school, and the sorrow that shook the whole school.
    A few years ago my wife and I travelled to London, England, and, we were thrilled to view the staqe show of the “Buddy Holly Show” in London. I am now in my mid-sixties, and cannot think of a greater thrill than to see the “Buddy Holly” story in my home town (Vancouver, B.C.} after all these years.

    thank you
    Charlie Walker
