Surely you remember exactly where you were and who you were with and what everyone was wearing when you first heard the news that New York City's Theater 80 would play host to an unauthorized Saved by the Bell musical.

Surely you remember exactly where you were and who you were with and what everyone was wearing when you first heard the news that New York City's Theater 80 would play host to an unauthorized Saved by the Bell musical.

If you're one of the few '90s kids who have yet to make the pilgrimage to New York's East Village to relive the hijinks and calamitous antics of Zack and the rest of the Bayside High folks, you might want to schedule your right of passage for the second weekend in February, when the actual, real-life Mr. Belding will join the cast.

Dennis Haskins, best known for his role as Mr. Belding on the television series Saved by the Bell, will join the cast of Bayside! The Musical!, the unauthorized stage parody of the iconic teen comedy, for the February 7 and 8 performances at Theater 80.

Inspired by the long-running television series, Bayside! The Musical! is billed as tackling "all the tough questions": Will Slater quit wrestling forever? Can the gang save The Max? And most important, will Zack and Kelly break up?

Congratulations, you all officially have plans for the first weekend of 2014 without any NFL action to be had. (Yes, we're rounding up in the case of the Pro Bowl.) [Theater Mania, h/t Uproxx]
