Welcome to 1959 Milwaukee and the home of the Cunninghams in Happy Days, a musical based on the popular ABC TV show. Things seem quaint in this town until the classic hang-out, Arnold's, finds itself about to be torn down. It's up to Fonzie and the gang to save the popular spot with a dance contest and a wrestling match.
Garry Marshall, who created the Happy Days TV series, created the book for the music, which also includes music and lyrics from Paul Williams. Lee Buckholz directed the production, Heather Paigs Folsom served as choreographer, and Scott Bradley was musical director. The cast includes Kyle Braun, Sarah Koster, Cary Wiger, Carly Stotts, and Scott Anthony as Arthur The Fonz Fonzarelli.
More information on the show can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.
