Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Ritchie, Potsie, Ralph Malph, and the unforgettable king of cool, Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures TV series, Happy Days, A New Musical reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams - yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too - to a whole new generation of kids and parents.
The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hangout, Arnold’s, is in danger of demolition. So the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a TV-worthy wrestling match. Even Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie’s childhood sweetheart, returns to help and - lo and behold - they rekindle their old flame.
Happy Days, A New Musical, with amazing music from Oscar winner Paul Williams and a book by the TV series original creator Garry Marshall is a perfect way to return to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin’ fun. This perfect family-friendly musical will have you rocking all week long!
