Sugababe joins Fonzie and co for Happy Days at the Hippodrome
SUGABABES star Heidi Range will be rockin' and rollin' at Bristol Hippodrome next year in feel-good musical Happy Days.
The Liverpudlian pop singer has landed the part of Pinky Tuscadero, girlfriend of Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli, in the new production, which promises to have audiences dancing in the aisles.
Happy Days – A New Musical makes its UK premiere in 2014, touring to Bristol in March. Based on the hit American television series, Happy Days – A New Musical invites you to join your favourite 1950s family, the Cunninghams, and the rest of the gang including Potsie, Ralph Malph, Joanie and Chachi as they battle to save their beloved diner Arnold's from demolition.
In a race against time, can everyone's favourite hero, The Fonz, save the day?
Happy Days – A New Musical is written by Garry Marshall, the legendary creator of the popular television series. Garry is also the director of many worldwide smash-hit films including Pretty Woman and Beaches.
Happy Days – A New Musical includes 21 original songs by Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winner and Hall of Fame songwriter Paul Williams (Bugsy Malone, Evergreen, Rainy Days And Mondays) as well as the much-loved Happy Days theme song.
Henry Winkler, the original Fonz from the television series, will serve as creative consultant, working alongside the director in creating the Happy Days world of 1959 America and guiding the cast in creating their familiar characters.
Heidi is best known for being the longest-serving current member of the multi-platinum-selling British girl group Sugababes. Last year, Heidi took part in the ITV series Dancing On Ice, and subsequently in the live UK tour.
