In an effort to further key Business and Arts partnerships paramount to keeping the arts accessible to all members of the community, Stapleton MCA and The Aurora Fox will present the Regional Premiere of Happy Days – A New Musical by Garry Marshall September 18th and 25th at 6:00pm and 19th and 26th at 4:00pm as part of Stapleton’s new Theatre on the Green series on the lawn at Founder’s Green.
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, motorcycles and jukebox sock-hoppin’.
The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hang-out, Arnold’s (complete with its signature spinning “A” on the roof), is in danger of demolition, so the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a tv-worthy wrestling match featuring none other than Fonzie, himself. This perfectly family-friendly musical will have the audience rockin’ and rollin’ all week long!
Admission is FREE to the general public. So end your summer with a be-boppin’ bang! Pack a picnic, grab the kids and a blanket and head on over to Stapleton’s outdoor theatre for a fun ride back to the good ol’ days. Located at 29th and Quebec on the Green. No reservations necessary.
Happy Days – A New Family Musical is directed by Pam Clifton with Scenic Design by Charles Dean Packard, Lighting by Jen Orf, Costumes by Erin Leonard, Properties by Lindsay Sullivan, and Stage Management by Paul Behrhorst. Motorcycles provided by Erico Motorsports.
