Buddy’s America was grappling with the civil rights movement and this musical does not shy away from an important discussion of the racial and social politics of the 1950s. We are seeking a racially and ethnically diverse cast of performers to tell this story justly and truthfully.    

Do you play guitar? A banjo? Percussion? Perhaps a harmonica? Maybe you and your bandmates have been looking for a chance to act and jam onstage? We are seeking a variety of musician-actors to bring this story to the stage and all instruments are welcome. In addition to Buddy Holly and The Crickets, this show boasts The Hayriders, a country-western band, the Apollo Theatre orchestra, and Surf Ballroom house band. We welcome individual musicians and small groups or bands to audition!
