POSTED December 3, 2015 6:48 p.m.

The ever-popular Winter Dance Party show, featuring the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, is making a return visit to the Turlock Community Theatre.

"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 50s era: “That'll Be The Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Oh, Boy,” “Rave On,” “La Bamba,” “Chantilly Lace,” and 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 and Linwood Sasser fills the legendary footsteps of the Big Bopper. Ray Anthony performs as Ritchie Valens and is a renowned star of the "Legends of Rock and Roll" show at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. The very authentic and energetic four piece band (guitar, drums, stand up bass and sax) includes Grammy award winning Mike Acosta on saxophone.

 The “Winter Dance Party” show has performed in front of over 2 million people on national TV for the Jerry Lewis Telethon, at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada.

The show is at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 19 at the Turlock Community Theatre. Tickets are $29, $35, and $39 and are available at turlocktheatre.org or by calling 668-1169.
