C’MON GET HAPPY

The Partridge Family Musical

PROPOSAL


‘C’mon Get Happy’ is a brand new musical jukebox music format based on the hit 70’s TV series The Partridge Family. The show features the greatest hits of the Partridge Family, interspersed with scenes written in the style of the original series, and narration by the group’s manager, Reuben.


To set the time period, a short multimedia clip will take people back to 1970 and highlight news, art, culture and trends from this era, including the original trailer for ABC’s highly successful Friday night schedule which featured The Brady Bunch, Nanny and the Professor, and The Partridge Family.


There is scope to show a 70 s Farrah Fawcett hair commercial (Farrah was in one episode of the original series) And also an ad for the popular game show at the time, Deal or No Deal.


The second half of the show will open with the audience participating in our real version of Deal or No Deal.


During the second half we break the fourth wall and reveal it a TV show and break into a short David Cassidy solo segment, before getting back to the family and a selection of their biggest hits.
