Happy Days is back with an all-new cast! This time it is a musical and it will be a play running in Burbank, CA at the Falcon Theatre. The musical will be directed by Gary Marshall himself. He of course created and produced the '70s sitcom that took place in the good 'ole '50s.
Grab your poodle skirt and letterman jacket and come on down to the Falcon Theatre! It's May, 1959 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Fonzie (Joey McIntyre of Dancing with the Stars) is still the king of cool at his favorite malt shop, Arnold's. The school year is coming to an end and Richie, Lori Beth, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the rest of the gang, are all getting ready to graduate from Jefferson High School. All your favorites from this famous sitcom, including Pinky Tuscadero and the Malachi Brothers, are here to sing you back into the '50s. Bring the ENTIRE FAMILY for a musical celebration of nostalgia at its best and brightest!
Previews start this Wednesday (Feb. 15) and will run through Feb. 23. The opening night will be Feb. 24 and will run through March 12. Showtimes are Tues-Sat at 8pm, Saturday at 3pm and Sunday at 4pm. Tickets are between $25.00 and $37.50. Starring Joey McIntyre (Dancing with the Stars) as The Fonz, Ernie Sabella (Perfect Strangers) as Arnold and Christine Lakin (Step by Step) as Joanie. The rest of the cast includes: Audra Blaser, Ryan Bollman, Joseph Leo Bwarie, Wayne Duvall, Cynthia Ferrer, Philip Lightstone, Heather Lindell, Matt Merchant, Jaclyn Miller, DeQuina Moore, Rory O'Malley, Robert Petrarca, Paul C. Vogt and Anna A. White. So come on down to the Falcon Theatre to hear the Fonz say, "Aaayh!!! It's a Musical!!"

Instead of going out shopping on a Saturday, sit back and shop right here with us! Today we will be giving away bargain prices of sitcom DVD sets that have not been selling too tell. Here are the items up for bids: 227 - The Complete 1st Season, Who's the Boss? - The Complete First Season, Barney Miller - The First Season, Night Court - The Complete First Season, Just Shoot Me - Seasons One & Two, Murphy Brown - The Complete First Season. If you are fans of these sitcoms, please buy the sets if you have not already (and if you are not a fan, try them anyway!). It will certainly make a difference to get the next season of these shows if sales spike up.
So, what's the next item up for bids? Well, one of the best DVD players to play these DVD sets, Bob! It's the Panasonic DVD S29S DVD Player and it is yours if the price is right! Do I hear $1? No, sorry we are not giving this away as a prize, but you can buy it for an affordable price at Amazon.com.
Now what is your complaint? You don't have a television set to hook up the DVD player to watch these DVDs? Not to worry, our next item up for bids is a great television set. It's the Sony KV-30HS420 30" FD Trinitron WEGA HD-Ready Widescreen CRT TV (say that ten times fast!) and it will be all yours if the price is right. You can buy that on Amazon.com for a great price, too.
What? You travel a lot and have no time to watch your DVDs? Well that's fine, too! You're in luck because we also have a portable DVD player item up for bids. It's the Samsung DVD-L70 7" Portable DVD Player and again it will be all yours if the price is right! Buy it right here with us at Amazon.com. After all this, I don't want to hear any complaints on why you didn't buy these DVD sets! I just gave you everything you need!
