SPENCER COMMUNITY THEATRE, Spencer, IA

Buddy had audiences dancing in the aisles in 2008, becoming the biggest hit in the theatre's history. The show was such a success, SCT remounted the production the following year in Mason City, IA, as part of the 50th Anniversary commemoration of 'the Day the Music Died'. And a very special person joined the cast on stage for the encore!
