Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story

Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story


With great disappointment, Showbiz Christchurch announces the cancellation of our 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, we are not confident enough that this will be the case in time, nor do we have the ability to move the show to alternative dates later this year.

The 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 contacted by email by Ticketek with a similar message to this. All tickets will be refunded in full, and once ticket sales open for our next planned production (Matilda in April 2022), all Buddy ticket 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 Ticketek’s 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 Ticketek directly.

If your credit or debit card has been permanently closed/cancelled or the card has expired, please supply Ticketek 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 Ticketek 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 likely to be a delay in response times.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding!
