Happy Days: The Musical features all of the favorite characters from the 1970s TV series, including Arnold, Richie, Potsie, and some guy named The Fonz.  However, in 1959 Milwaukee, Wisconsin, not all is well with the Happy Days gang.  Arnold's is in danger of closing (and being replaced by a new-fangled thing called a mall), and it's up to the gang to save the hangout.  They'll do that with a mix of dancing, music, and a wrestling contest.  

Jen Anderson directed Happy Days: The Musical, which features Paul Williams's music and lyrics and Garry Marshall's book.  The musical's cast features Charles Swarens as Arnold and Bobby Farmer as The Fonz.  

Following Happy Days, Hayswood Theatre will present Neil Simon's Rumours.  Auditions for the show will take place Feb. 18 and 19.
