Happy Times at Happy Days

Happy Days - A New Musical
River City Community Players

The River City Community Players' current production of "Happy Days" is an energetic and vibrant showcase of local and visiting talent. Director Nino Casisi and music director Deana Wagner have assembled a talented cast into a well-staged, musically mastered production. Special kudos for a great pit orchestra! Accolades need to go to the magnificent choreographers Geri Weinbaum and Sadie Vetter. The set was stunning and very different from anything ever presented at the RCCP, another plus for the multi-talented Nino Casisi.

The show moved along very nicely with several outstanding performances. Particularly noteworthy was Chris Foglio as the iconic "The Fonz", Rachel Szmed as Marion Cunningham, and Breanna Danielle Swatzell as Pink Tuscadero. David Varner as Ralph Malph and Raphael Tate and Branson Bliss as the Malachi brothers provided first class comic relief to an already funny production.

The Saturday evening performance was sold out and remaining tickets for the closing weekend should go quickly. I highly recommend you make every effort to come out and see the show and make your reservations NOW!
