The people of Bromley will be transported back to the 1950s as Happy Days the musical comes to the stage in January.

Opening at The Churchill Theatre in High Street, the show will star television presenter and singer Cheryl Baker, Heidi Range, once of the multiplatinum group Sugababes, and Ben Freeman, from TV soap Emmerdale, who stars as The Fonz.

The musical is both directed and choreographed by Olivier award nominee Andrew Wright, and the show is written by the original creator of the television series, Garry Marshall.

But Mr Marshall is not only talented in creating timeless TV series but also classic films such as Pretty Woman, Beaches and the Princess Diaries series.

Happy Days on stage is the story of how the gang try to rescue their beloved diner Arnold’s from being destroyed and look to The Fonz for help.

With more than 20 original songs by Grammy and Golden Globe winner Paul Williams, who wrote music in the classic Bugsy Malone, the show is guaranteed to get your foot tapping.

Henry Winkler, the original Fonz from the famous TV series, will act as a creative consultant by guiding the cast in recreating the world of 1959.

The musical will start off in The Churchill Theatre before beginning a nationwide tour so everyone can join in the rock and roll performance.

Showings start from January 11, doors will open at 7.30pm. For more details visit
