Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story

June 15 - 17,  19 - 24,  27 - 30,   July 1

Thoresen Theater,  Randolph College

Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when ‘That’ll Be The Day’ hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “the day the music died”. The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘Not Fade Away’, ‘Rave On’ and ‘Raining In My Heart’, plus Ritchie Valens’ ‘La Bamba’ and the big bopper’s ‘Chantilly Lace’.

The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock & roll, continues to live on in Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story.

Seen by over 22 million people around the world, Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story will have you on your feet and “send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high” (Boston Globe).

As You Like It

July  5 - 8,  11 - 15

"The Randolph College Dell" - Mabel K. Whiteside Greek Theatre

The magic of the forest brings young lovers together... while confusing everyone else. Shakespeare's classic comedy As You Like It gets back to nature in true Endstation fashion, by marrying the natural beauty of Virginia with the poetic beauty of the theatre.

Escaping from their hostile family, Rosalind and her best friend Celia leave civilization for the fabled Forest of Arden. Dressed as brother and sister, with their trusted friend the fool as their only companion, they encounter a handsome wrestler, a banished outlaw and his merry men, and the true ruler of the forest... a king with his own antlers.

As Rosalind transforms into a young shepherd, she teaches Orlando – and us – how to fall in love in the way only Shakespeare can – with quick minds, sharp tongues, and pounding hearts.

Br'er Cotton

July  20 - 22,  25 - 29 • 7:30 PM

Thoresen Theater,  Randolph College

A play researched and written in Lynchburg, Virginia by Terrance Chisholm as part of Endstation Theatre Company's Playwrights Initiative.  

The play takes place in Lynchburg. The former site of a thriving cotton mill is now an impoverished neighborhood. Deeply affected by all the recent killings of young black men like himself, Ruffrino, a 14 year old, incites riots at school and online. More and more at odds with his mother and grandfather, the boy's anger grows beyond containment while the family home literally sinks into the cotton field, and no one seems to notice but him.
