Hey Acting Out-University of North Carolina School of the Arts, if you were our script, we’d never go off book. 😉

Anybody else got a musical theatre pick-up line?

#valentinesday #happyvalentinesdayLess than one week until tickets for "The Drowsy Chaperone" go on sale! Make plans to bring your sweetheart when the show opens in May!

What a way to spend Valentine! Day with my Pat Butler!

Meet the Cast of “Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story!”

Gray Smith is returning to play Buddy for the second time at Theatre Alliance.

Gray has several favorite songs, but it’s hard for him to narrow them down, as he enjoys all of the show’s music. Songs like “Raining in My Heart,” “Oh, Boy!,” “Ollie Vee,” and “Chantilly Lace” are some of them. “What a great opportunity to be able to sing all of these great songs with an awesome 9-piece band, led by Tommy Jackson.”

“Buddy Holly was a trailblazer in the music industry, and when you hear this catalog of his songs all together in one evening, you understand why. He was truly ahead of his time.”

“Audiences should come to this show to experience the energy of Buddy’s final concert, as it is replicated song-for-song in Act Two, and it is such a powerful moment in the show. It is hard to describe the feeling, but there is a definite high at that point of the show. It’s like reviving a piece of history.”

Gray is most excited about doing “Buddy” again “so that folks who missed it the first time can maybe catch it this time around, and that those who enjoyed it previously can come back. It’s such a great night of fun!”

He wants to thank his mom for taking him to his first-ever audition at the age of 13, where he landed the role of “Munchkin” in “The Wizard of Oz” (pic above). “It’s been my passion ever since.”

Gray has been in numerous shows throughout the Triad, with some of his favorite roles through the years being Hank in “Hank Williams: Lost Highway,” George Jones in “Stand by Your Man: The Tammy Wynette Story,” Johnny Cash in “Million Dollar Quartet,” Bruce in “Fun Home,”
Javert in “Les Miserables,” The Engineer in “Miss Saigon,” Edna in “Hairspray,” Frank-n-Furter in “The Rocky Horror Show,” Tracy Mills in “The Legend of Georgia McBride,” Quasimodo in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” Leading Player in “Pippin,” Will Rogers in “Will Rogers Follies,” Shrek in “Shrek: The Musical,” Ursula in “The Little Mermaid,” Arles in all the “Greater Tuna” series, Kerchek in “Tarzan,” Alban in “La Cage aux Folles,” Dan in “Next to Normal,” The Beast in “Beauty and the Beast,” Hysterium in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” El Gallo in “The Fantasticks,” Huck in “Big River,” Seymour in “Little Shop of Horrors,” and Molina in “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” plus roles in “Ragtime,” “White Christmas,” “Priscilla: Queen of the Desert,” “Rock of Ages,” “Silence! The Musical,” “Aida,” and the “Forever Plaid” series.

He also thanks everyone for supporting Theatre Alliance, Jamie, and him throughout the years!

I just counted—I think I have seen Gray in 14 shows. Thanks to Gray and everyone at TA. Such incredible talent, bringing joy, sharing love, and making me think about the world.

Meet the cast of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story: A newcomer to this show but not to our stage, welcome back Braxton Allen (Tyrone Jones/Clear Lake MC)

Braxton wanted to be a part of Buddy because "I was told about my character before auditions and after hearing that the song “Shout” would be in the show I was sold!"

Braxton's favorite song in the show is "Raining in my heart. I really like the harmonies in that song as well as the background music."

"This show was challenging for me because we started rehearsing for it while I was still performing in another show, so there was not much time for rest!"

Braxton is honored to be performing in his fifth show with Theatre Alliance. He has previously been seen on this stage in Disaster, The Who's Tommy, Memphis, as well as Hairspray. His other credits include Smokey Joe’s Cafe (Paramount Acting Company), Shrek The Musical (Kernersville Little Theatre), and he served as music director for James and the Giant Peach Jr. with High Point Community Theatre.
