Professor C.C. Heintzeman was a visionary educator who used music to change the lives of Minneapolis factory-working boys in the early 1900s. In playwright Dominic Orlando's world-premiere musical, romance, patriotism and the approaching thrum of World War I weave together in a celebration of Heintzeman's life and the rough-and-tumble young men who formed the Working Boys Band under his tutelage. Put on by History Theatre, a company devoted to exploring the rich history of Minnesota, Working Boys Band is a tribute to the power of music, compassion and discipline. Learn More

GREAT show!!! Good energy, good acting, GREAT voices. Not too long, not too short. I've been to the Surf Ball Room in Clear Lake, IA many times so this story is near and dear to my heart although I was only 2 when Buddy Holly died.

Part biography, part rock ‘n’ roll concert, this is the musical retelling of the life and times of Buddy Holly from his meteoric rise to stardom to the unforgettable concert in Clear Lake, Iowa.
