Those Happy Days can be yours once again when the hit TV comedy show comes to the stage at The Lowry in Salford Quays from June 24-28.

This new UK tour features the unforgettable ‘King of Cool’ Arthur ‘The Fonz’ Fonzarelli. It follows ‘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.
West End leading man Ben Freeman takes on the iconic role of The Fonz, alongside Liverpool-born Heidi Range, of multiplatinum selling girl group the Sugababes, as Pinky Tuscadero.
Cheryl Baker, of Bucks Fizz fame, plays the role of Mrs Cunningham.
Happy Days – A New Musical is produced by Amy Anzel, one of the standout stars of Channel 4’s The Sound of Musicals.
Directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Andrew Wright, the show is written by Garry Marshall, the legendary creator of the Happy Days TV series and director of hit films Pretty Woman and Beaches.
The show features 21 original songs by Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe award-winning Hall of Fame songwriter Paul Williams (Bugsy Malone) as well as the much-loved Happy Days theme tune.
Henry Winkler, the original Fonz, serves as creative consultant, working alongside the director Andrew Wright and the cast in creating the Happy Days world of 1959 America and those much-loved characters.
