Back to 50s in Mega Musical

What: Happy Days
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre

HAPPY Days are here again, almost.

The arena mega musical version of the smash TV sitcom will hit the Newcastle Entertainment centre next week.

More than 80 performers will bring the rocking sounds of the 50s to life in a huge stage production.

The show features the original 'Mr C' TOM BOSLEY and Australian stars CRAIG McLAUGHLAN, JO BETH TAYLOR, REBECCA GIBNEY and JON STEVENS recreating favourite characters including FONZIE, RITCHIE, POTTSIE and RALPH.

The original Fonz, HENRY WINKLER visited Australia recently to check out the rehearsals and offer advice to the performers.

Acting as the show's creative consultant, Winkler said he was blown away by the size and professionalism of the Australian show.

You can catch TE's interview with Henry Winkler in next week's edition.

Tickets for the first four Newcastle shows have all but sold out and the fifth and final show announced last week is selling well.

TE has one double pass to give away. To enter, e-mail to teonline@newcastle.fairfax.com.au or post to Happy Days PO Box 615, Newcastle 2300.
