Happy Days are here again
HAPPY Days are here again as a brand new UK To ur based on the hit TV series, featuring the unforgettable ‘King of Cool’ Arthur ‘The Fonz’ Fonzarelli, arrives in Southampton.
Join your favourite 50s family, the Cunninghams and the rest of the gang – Potsie, Ralph Malph, Joanie and Chachi as they battle to save their beloved diner Arnold’s from demolition.
In a race against time, can everyone’s favourite hero ‘The Fonz’ save the day?
Happy Days is written by Garry Marshall, who created the TV original, as well as directing Pretty Woman and Beaches.
He told Lorelei Reddin: “I think people will find everything they loved in the original Happy Days in this.
“I think they loved the friendships and the fact that it wasn’t a family like they are in reality.
They all felt like family to me and I think that was the same for a lot of people.
“It translated to any country really and people just loved taking a peek into somebody else’s life. They wished their life was like that and it made them believe their life was better.
“I love a good love story, I’m a romantic at heart, and I’m so glad we’ve been able to bring Happy Days back.”
The show features original music by Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams (Bugsy Malone, Evergreen, Rainy Days and Mondays).
It stars former Sugababe Heidi Range as Pinky Tu scadero, Ben Freeman, who played Scott Windsor in Emmerdale as The Fonz and singer and TV presenter Cheryl Baker as Mrs Cunningham.
