More than 2,000 Holly fans paid $50 each to attend the sold-out concert at the newly renovated Surf Ballroom, where Holly gave his last performance in 1959. Holly was killed after the concert when his plane crashed in a soybean field. Also killed were rockers J.P. "Big Bopper” Richardson, Ritchie Valens and pilot Roger Peterson. Holly fans who still mourn the Day the Music Died can take bus tours to a memorial that has been set up on the site.

San Antonio St. Dale teaches watercolor on Mondays at NBAL Gallery.Show’s company meets challenges The director and cast of “The Goodbye Girl,” opening tomorrow at Circle Arts Theatre, have a right to be proud of themselves. According to the show’s producer, Elizabeth Elliott, they’ve had one hurdle after another to clear to reach their ultimate achievement, “getting their act together.” “A musical, especially one with the complex score this one has, needs at least six weeks to whip into shape,” said Elliott. “Unfortunately, this company has had only two trouble-free weeks out of the whole preparation process. You’d never know it, though. This past Sunday’s technical rehearsal was a remarkable combination of patience, hard work and laughter.” The “hurdles” were the necessary absence of the leading lady for a week, the rehearsal material arriving a week late from the publishing house, the music director snowbound in New York for over a week, and the technical director bedridden for a week. “If only these weeks had been concurrent!” said Elliott. The cast is made of “strong stuff,” though, according to Roberta Elliott, director of the production. In turn, the actors have expressed their appreciation of their director’s equanimity and consideration. “In short,” said the senior Elliott, “they’re ‘simpatico,’ and that’s why the First Nighters will see a good “Can’t you see it?” Elliot (Frank Thomas) paints a rosy picture of life on the stage for Lucy (Alexandra Stanley) under the disapproving glare of her mother, Paula (Joy Lindsey) in this scene from “The Goodbye Girl,*' opening tomorrow at Circle Arts Theatre. show.” Lead roles are being played by Joy Lindsey, Frank Thomas and Alexandra Stanley, supported by featured actors Jane Haas, Tom Balmos, Christie Smith, Abigail Smith, Kelly Kohlenberg, Jennifer Hoots, Sheryl Hall and Joei!
