The Downtown Cabaret Theatre Presents:

The Winter Dance Party: Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens

Bridgeport’s award winning Downtown Cabaret Theatre (DCT) continues its 40th Anniversary season on November 21 at 5:00pm & 8:15pm by bringing back the crowd favorite Winter Dance Party:  Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens.

John Mueller’s “Winter Dance Party” ® is the official live and authentic re-creation of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper’s final tour and the only show endorsed by the Holly, Valens and Richardson estates. Each live concert performance includes over two hours of unbridled, high voltage entertainment featuring all the hit songs of the 50’s era: That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh, Boy, Rave on, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, and many, many more.

John Mueller, the critically acclaimed former star of the U.S. touring version of the London/Broadway hit musical “Buddy..the Buddy Holly Story,” performs as Buddy Holly with Linwood Sasser as the Big Bopper and Ray Anthony as Ritchie Valens. The very authentic and energetic four piece band (guitar, drums, stand up bass and sax) includes Grammy award winning Mike Acosta on saxophone.
