“I have not seen anything so creatively imaginative, powerful, and moving for a long time. We go to the theatre because we want to laugh, to cry, to think, to feel. DANI GIRL epitomizes the theatre experience.” – AussieTheatre.com

Wheelhouse Theatrical Productions presents Dani Girl, a musical by Kooman and Dimond. Dani Girl is the story of a young girl and her unwillingness to succumb to her second bout of leukemia without a fight. Trying to make sense out of her diagnosis, treatment and dysfunctional family dynamics, Dani transforms her struggle into a larger-than-life adventure. Together with her teddy bear, imaginary guardian angel, and movie-obsessed hospital roommate, she battles a personified Cancer across the realms of fantasy and reality as she attempts to get her beloved hair back. Told from a child’s perspective, this provocative musical explores the universal themes of life in the face of death, hope in the face of despair, and the indomitable power of imagination. Dani Girl is heartfelt and warm, with moments of hilarity and sharp wit, while approaching the portrayal of reality with more subtlety; it brings the seriousness of the matter into a more blossoming presentation for the audience to see the clearer picture
