HAPPY DAYS - A NEW MUSICAL is a brand new production and will be the UK premiere of this fun feel-good musical based on the hit TV show.
The show has been written by the creator of the TV show, Garry Marshall. Garry is also a legendary Hollywood director having directed films such as Pretty Woman, Beaches, and The Princess Diaries.
The music and lyrics are by Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter Paul Williams. Paul is best known for his hit songs of the 70's including The Carpenters' 'We've Only Just Begun', 'Rainy Days and Mondays', 'The Rainbow Connection' from The Muppet Movie, 'Evergreen' and Bugsy Malone.
Henry Winkler, the original Fonz from the TV show, will serve as Creative Consultant.
This UK Premiere will undertake a 24-week National Tour beginning in January 2014 with the intention of subsequently coming into the West End.
The show will star Ben Freeman of Emmerdale fame as The Fonz, Cheryl Baker formerly of Bucks Fizz as Mrs. Cunningham, and popstar Heidi Range as Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie's love interest. Heidi is best known for being the longest serving member of the Sugababes.
If this national tour is a success, which we are confident it will be, we hope to subsequently transfer the show into a full West End production. Here we are offering investors the opportunity to invest in the national tour, but if we do end up transitioning the production to a West End production, we aim to offer those investors on Seedrs a right of first refusal to invest in the West End production.
