SUGABABES star Heidi Range will take the lead in the new national tour of Happy Days.

Heidi will star as Pinky Tuscadero in the musical, which has been directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Andrew Wright.

The show has been written by Garry Marshall, the legendary creator of the television series and is also the director of smash-hit films Pretty Woman, Beaches and The Princess Diaries.

Heidi is best known for being the longest-serving current member of the multi-platinum-selling British girl group and last year, she also took part in the ITV series, Dancing On Ice.

Happy Days includes 21 original songs by Bugsy Malone songwriter Paul Williams, as well as the much-loved sitcom’s theme song.

Henry Winkler, the original Fonz from the television series, will serve as creative consultant, guiding the cast in creating their ever-so-familiar characters.

This brand new UK tour features the unforgettable king of cool Arthur ‘The Fonz’ Fonzarelli.

Audiences will have the chance to join their favourite 1950s family, the Cunninghams and the rest of the gang – Potsie, Ralph Malph, Joanie and Chachi as they battle to save their beloved diner Arnold’s from demolition.

Happy Days will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from March 3-8 2014 at 7.30pm with matinees on March 5 and 8 at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £15-39.50, are available from the box office on 0844 8713012.
