The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences brings a world-class facility to west Texas and is named for Lubbock’s most famous son, the ’50s pop legend whose brief career inspired generations of musicians and fans. A diverse range of stakeholders, including Ballet Lubbock, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, the local school district, two universities, and a Broadway promoter, ensure Buddy Holly Hall will be a vital and dynamic center of performing arts. The mixed-use facility is versatile and flexible to accommodate large touring musicals as well as intimate dance performances. It will facilitate education, banquets and be acoustically adaptable for any musical genre.

Featured amenities of this hybrid performance venue include a 2,200-seat main theater, 425-seat studio theater, 6,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose room, and a bistro cafe. An inviting lobby with a dramatic helical staircase welcomes a relaxed formality for a night out in a lively complex that feels right either in jeans and boots or in suits and gowns. The project is a catalyst for downtown Lubbock revitalization.
