Legends of RocknRoll (TM) presents

Buddy Holly and the Beatles

The Early Years of Rock'n'Roll


The Legends of Rock n’ Roll presents two great attractions on one spectacular show…
Zachary Stevenson returns to the stage as Buddy Holly, and he is joined by the knockout Beatles tribute band… The Fab Fourever.
It’s a well-known secret that without the influence of Buddy Holly… the Beatles may not have existed, as Paul McCartney stated; “John and I started to write songs because of Buddy Holly.” The Beatles name also comes from John wanting a bug-themed name similar to Buddy Holly’s “Crickets.”
Now some 50 years later… Buddy Holly, the man that left such a huge impression on what is arguably the biggest pop phenomenon of all time, is being celebrated together with the Beatles through their music by two world-class tribute attractions… Zachary Stevenson performing as Buddy Holly and the Fab Fourever performing as the Beatles.
Stevenson has performed as Buddy in no less than 10 different productions of ‘The Buddy Holly Story’, and is currently being applauded for his leading role of the hit musical “Red Rock Diner” at Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre. (Michael Buble starred in the original production)
The Fab Fourever have been wowing audiences throughout Western Canada with their live renditions of all the Beatles hits. This show will pay homage to the music of the 50’s and early 60’s with the Fab Fourever performing songs from 1960 – 1965, songs from the Cavern Club in Liverpool, the Ed Sullivan Show, and their ‘64/’65 World Tours.
“We’ve been out to see Zachary play as Buddy and every time we do we are asked ‘why don’t we team up?’” says Jody Tennant who plays the role of Paul McCartney in the group. Kevin Davey as John Lennon ads “and then Zachary came out to one of our shows and the audience were asking the same thing.”
As Holly, Stevenson will be performing all of Buddy’s huge hits such as… “Maybe Baby”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Everyday”, “Oh Boy” and so many more.
The FAB FOUREVER counter with memorable tunes such as; “She Loves You”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Please Please Me”, “Twist and Shout”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, and countless others from the early 60’s.
This is a musical pairing that could never have happened until now… enjoy the music of two of the greatest rock’n’roll artists of all time… together on one spectacular show!
Buddy Holly and The Beatles… plus special added attraction… Rock’n’Roll Diva Molly Dee!

Massey Theatre Society presents

Homecoming:these Glorious Years

Directed by Dolores Kirkwood


A Performance Celebrating 65 Incredible Years!
Sunday, June 14, 2015 at 7:30pm

65 Years old and not even close to retiring! Join The Massey Theatre on Sunday, June 14th at 7:30pm in celebrating its’ 65th anniversary with a Gala Performance of cherished performers who share a history with the Massey who will be reunited and revive memorable performances and moments on the stage. The Massey, located at 735 Eighth Ave in New Westminster is a Metro Vancouver landmark.

Over its 65 years the 1260 seat Massey Theatre has stayed true to its mission of nurturing and supporting the performing arts on many levels with respect and integrity. It has been vital to not only to the community of New Westminster but to the Metro Vancouver region as a whole by being a catalyst for the performing arts and enriching its vibrant expressive community.

The Gala performance with over 100 performers will be a snapshot of what makes the Massey unique. Encouraging and nurturing talent to reach for their dreams continues to be a driving force of the Massey along with supporting community groups and festivals. It has helped launch professional careers such as Charlotte Diamond, Jeff Hyslop and Susan Anderson to name a few, and continues today to promote budding careers of Thomas Lamont, who just played Freddie in My Fair Lady to supporting diverse classical artists like Cassis Khan, esteemed Indian musician, and Ryan Zhiu, piano prodigy.

The Gala is being directed by Order of BC recipient and esteemed local artistic director Dolores Kirkwood, co-founder of both Royal City Musical Theatre and Royal City Youth Ballet. As you can imagine there is boundless talent in the over 80 performers who are thrilled to bring these great memories back to life.

The evening will include performances from across the eras by some of British Columbia’s great talents performing some of the hits over the years with musical accompaniment by the 18 piece Royal City Musical Theatre Orchestra conducted by James Bryson.

• Charlotte Diamond
• Jeff Hyslop
• Roma Hearn
• Susan Anderson
• Sara-Jeanne Hosie
• John Payne
• Colleen Winton
• Matt Palmer
• Cassius Khan and Amika Kushwaha
• Kazumi Evans and Matt Baker
• Thomas Lamont
• Julia MacLean
• Royal City Youth Ballet
• Revivals of Royal City Musical Theatre’s big production numbers including: the orphans from Annie, Hello, Dolly! The Will Rogers Follies, A Chorus Line, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, 42nd Street, and the kids from Footloose.
• Goh Ballet with the Grand Pas de Deux from Don Quixote

The evening also includes a performance by Canada’s internationally acclaimed beloved singer and songwriter Charlotte Diamond. Charlotte’s career was launched from the Massey Theatre through her earlier teaching career. Charlotte’s debut album, 10 Carrot Diamond, won the Juno Award (equivalent of a Grammy)! 10 Carrot Diamond became a Certified Gold Record in Canada and also won a Parents' Choice Classic Award and an American Library Association Award in the U.S.A. Her career turned professional and international overnight! Songs such as, "Four Hugs a Day", "Each of us is a Flower”, "Octopus" (Slippery Fish) and "I am a Pizza" started to become a regular part of classroom and family life.

Today the Massey is as dynamic as ever in fulfilling its unique role as a facilitator of educational, community and professional performing arts – a catalyst for an expressive community and a stage where any dream is possible, since 1949. It continues to be fertile ground for community groups, competitions, festivals, student performances, large scale musical theatre and ballets, and, international performers of note. Over 200 events are presented at the Massey Theatre each season.

This is a celebration of 65 glorious years - for the whole family, for the whole community.

The Metro-Vancouver based group will showcase the beloved folk dances and music of the Philippines, a country that features a broad spectrum of dance styles and influences including indigenous, Arabic-Malayan, Spanish and western vestiges.
