These days are ours, happy and free with Happy Days Live at the Niswonger! Take a trip down memory lane with Potsie and Ralph as they celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary!

"Happy Days Live" takes America back for 90 minutes to the best of times, when the entire family gathered around the television and joined the Fonz, Richie, Potsie, and Ralphie in Arnold's at their favorite table; the 50's music playing along with the simple fun of those special times with lifelong friends.

"Happy Days Live" opens with the rockin' Happy Days theme along with classic clips of the show. Suddenly, one of the most iconic, popular characters in world is introduced, Anson Williams, Potsie from Happy Days! The band kicks in, playing a raucous version of 'Tossin & Turnin' as Anson surprises the audience by singing and dancing with them from the back of the house to the stage. Anson introduces another world-renowned icon, Ralph Malph  (Donny Most) who also surprises the audience singing and dancing with them all the way to the stage. Anson and Don end the song and welcome the crowd back to Arnold's, two of the most iconic television stars of all time...together again.

In the course of the show, Don and Anson individually and together share Happy Days stories (John Lennon surprising them on the Happy Days set, dating the president of the United States daughter) sing the audiences favorite Happy Days songs, starting with the original video clip and then transforming into a live version, moments when Anson brings up a lucky young lady from the audience and sings to her "Put Your Head On My Shoulder," just like he sang to Joanie when she fell in love with him, and Don getting standing ovations for his outstanding rendition of Bobby Darin's, "Mack The Knife."  Together they show the most famous clips from Happy Days along with a Blooper Reel of hilarious moments. They also inspire the audience...that all of us have a Fonz inside of us, that we are all winners. Anson and Don close the show with a full audience participation, on their feet, singing and dancing to the classic "Rock Around The Clock!' 

Anson And Don come back on stage for an audience Q & A. Laugh your way back with this Happy Days experience and get the inside scoop on what made this show the cultural icon of it’s day.
