Rockin’ the holidays at Elements Casino

Enjoy various musical shows and artistic endeavours in December at this View Royal fun spot

Zachary Stevenson, the leading man in the hit musical “The Buddy Holly Story,” brings his uncanny resemblance to the legendary 50’s rocker’s musical performance to View Royal for a Dec. 22 show in the Platinum Room at Elements Casino.

Buddy’s Holly Jolly Christmas will see Stevenson do a tribute show reminiscent of the variety shows of the past. Rounding out the cast for this fun show are Cassandra Frie, who performs as songstress Brenda Lee; and the ever-popular Ben Klein, who hits the stage as a young Elvis Presley.

Audience members will hear many of their favourite hits and some seasonal tunes performed by the trio of tribute artists, who will be backed up by the All-Star Legends Band.

The show gets underway at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 22. Tickets are $45, available online at ticketmaster.ca (search for Holly Jolly Christmas event) or in advance at the casino.
