BONIFAY — Holmes County High School Drama will present the musical “Happy Days, A New Musical” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, Saturday, May 11, Monday, May 13, Tuesday May 14 and Friday May 17 at the high school auditorium.

Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable "king of cool" Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures television series, Happy Days, A New Musical reintroduces one of America's best-loved families, the Cunninghams — yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too — to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hangout, Arnold's, is in danger of demolition. So the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and a TV-worthy wrestling match. Even Pinky Tuscadero, Fonzie's childhood sweetheart, returns to help and — lo and behold — they rekindle their old flame.

“Happy Days, A New Musical,” with amazing music from Oscar-winner Paul Williams and a book by the TV series original creator Garry Marshall, “Happy Days” will take you back to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin' fun. This perfectly family friendly musical will have you rockin' and rollin' all week long.

“Happy Days” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Tickets are $5 advance and $7 at the door. Tickets go on sale Thursday May 2.
