Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable “king of cool” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures’ television series, “Happy Days – A New Musical” reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams, and the days of 1959 Milwaukee, complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops, and jukebox sock-hoppin’.
The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hang-out, Arnold’s, is in danger of demolition, so the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and TV-worthy wrestling match. This perfectly family-friendly musical will have you rockin’ and rollin’ all week long!
“Happy Days — A New Musical” is based on the TV series created by Garry Marshall. The show’s music and lyrics were written by Oscar-winning composer Paul Williams. The show is directed by Wade Riggs, with music direction by Bill Collins and choreography by Kristi Webber.
