The Buddy Holly Story


In the best interest of public health, based on Governor Whitmer's orders on temporary prohibition on large assemblages and events, and for the safety of our patrons, volunteers and community, The Buddy Holly Story performance at Midland Center for the Arts, scheduled for Sunday, March 15 has been postponed.

We are working with the touring company to reschedule this performance at Midland Center for a later date and currently working with them to get that scheduled. We look forward to sharing the story and legacy of the iconic Buddy Holly with you. As soon as we have more information about that performance, we will let you know.

If you have a ticket to this event, our ticket office will be contacting you directly by phone to discuss the process of moving you to the new event or provide a refund.
