Published 12:00 am Thursday, January 10, 2019

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 — yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too — to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

The famed drive-in malt shop and No. 1 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, comes with the amazing music of Oscar-winner Paul Williams and a book by the TV series original creator Garry Marshall.

Return to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin’ fun.

Season sponsor is Mike Lewis & Associates, Attorneys at Law. Music by Paul Williams, Book by Gary Marshall. Directed by Jamie Lawson. Starring Brandon Hicks, John C. Wilson, Ken Ashford, Michelle Groneck, Ashley Pearson, Jake Messina and Taylor Bechtold
