Gerald Dolter
General Director
Buddy Holly Archives » William Kerns, 14 Mar 2009 [cached]
Gerald Dolter - whose many positions include director of Lubbock Moonlight Musicals - has performed and taught on an international basis, and never gotten caught up in arts controversies or squabbles.
Oh, don't take him for granted. He stays aware. But he primarily is interested in music and music history, with few limits on the music valued.
More than two years ago, it was hinted to Dolter that he might want to look into the rights to the hit musical attraction "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story."
Dolter pulled off the ground work, and was able to not only obtain the rights to this hit production - but also hire both of the actors who have been alternating in the role of Buddy Holly on stage in London's West End, Dean Elliott and Matt Wycliffe.
"I'm in it for the history," said Dolter.
Oh, and Dolter's not even from Lubbock. He grew up in Dubuque, Iowa.
"Guys and Dolls," directed by Dolter, opens July 17 and will close Aug. 21. Dolter will produce both productions.
This is an amazing accomplishment. I smiled upon realizing that this epic stage show, which earned major awards for its openings in both New York and London, is being brought to Lubbock by a non-profit organization rather than the city.
Dolter and his crew have invited Holly's widow, Maria Elena, to attend, which is the right thing to do.
They spoke with Mrs. Holly about the Moonlight Musicals anyway, and, according to Dolter, everyone is on the same page and the contract has been signed.
Dolter said, "We are espectailly interested in people who play musical instruments - primarily lead guitar, bass guitar and piano - in addition to singing.
Dolter also will have Elliott, Wycliffe and Bannister give workshops and seminars for theater students.
Automobile must be supplied, and Dolter said, "I'm sure they want to explore Lubbock, go see the Norman Petty Studio in Clovis, N.M., and visit West Texas when not working.

Gerald Dolter - Stage Director, Producer, Baritone
Gerald Dolter has established himself in opera houses and concert halls both in the United States and Europe. Opern Welt magazine has described his performances as "radiant," by the Frankfurter Rundschau as "powerful baritonal presence," and by England's Opera magazine as "electrifying. His operatic credits include appearances with the Pittsburgh, New Jersey State, Tulsa, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Arizona opera companies, as well as the opera companies of Frankfurt, Mannheim, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Düsseldorf, Gelsenkirchen, Krefeld, and Montpellier. From 1985 - 1991, Dolter was the leading baritone with Germany's Bremen Opera. His repertoire there included such diverse characterizations as Germont in La Traviata, Escamillo in Carmen, and Nick Shadow in The Rake's Progress. His operatic repertoire includes more than 85 characterizations.
Dolter joined the voice faculty at the Texas Tech School of Music in the fall of 1995. He became the Director of TTU Music Theatre in 1998. He has sought to program a wide variety of works to benefit students and the public interest.
Gerald Dolter was a National Winner in the Metropolitan Opera Auditions in 1984. He is now a frequent adjudicator for that competition at both the district and regional levels.
Gerald Dolter's latest venture has been the creation of a musical theatre production company, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals. Since its inception in summer of 2006, the company has produced many, grand-scale musicals in the outdoor setting of Lubbock's Wells Fargo Amphitheatre. High school and college students have benefited from this new company. In addition to valuable, professional stage experience, these students are paid stipends as administrators, stage performers, pit musicians and stage technicians. As a result of the company's success, a new dinner-theatre series, Moonlight Dinner Theatre, has spun off from summer operations. In addition, tour performances of LMM musicals have been given throughout Texas and New Mexico.
