Cast of 70 talented youngsters involved

Sidmouth Youth Theatre’s production of Happy Days, A New Musical takes to the Manor Pavilion stage tonight (Wednesday, February 1).

The show reintroduces one of America’s best-loved families - the Cunninghams - to a whole new generation of kids and parents.

Dust off your leathers and put on your bobby socks as a talented cast returns to the days of 1959 in Milwaukee, complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin’ fun.

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.
