Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences is informed by Texas’ stark, limitless vistas and its community’s lively cultural scene

In this year of stalled projects and dreams deferred, the opening of Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences is a cheering reminder of what this industry is all about. Having opened in January, it is only now beginning to hit its stride with a broad range of offerings that includes programs of music by Beethoven and Gustav Holst, the comic Brian Regan, Broadway’s Kristin Chenoweth, and touring musicals, including Jersey Boys, An Officer and a Gentleman, and—of course—Buddy: The Buddy Holly Musical.

Designed by Diamond Schmitt in association with Parkhill and MWM Architects of Lubbock, developed by Garfield Public/Private LLC in partnership with Lubbock Entertainment/Performing Arts Association (LEPAA), and built by Lee Lewis Construction, Buddy Holly Hall is now in operation and will formally celebrate its opening this summer. The hall includes two theatres, a ballet school, multipurpose rooms, a bistro, and bars. It is West Texas’ largest dedicated performance venue, bringing the city’s vibrant performing arts community—including the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Lubbock, and Lubbock Independent School District, along with a variety of professional touring productions—under one roof.

The previously mentioned multipurpose room includes Ballet Lubbock’s pre-professional academy. It is a 20,000-sq.-foot dance center, with offices and storage space. Schuler Shook and Jaffe Holden designed the performance infrastructure for the ballet school, including a large studio for informal presentations. Harlequin supplied the school with Harlequin Liberty panels and Harlequin Studio B Marley through Z Floor Company.
