When Dani, a precocious nine year old, loses her hair to leukemia, she embarks on a magical journey to get it back--along with her imaginary friend Raph and fellow patient Marty. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, Dani Girl is an inspirational tale of life in the face of death, hope in the face of despair, and the indomitable power of the human imagination. With music by Michael Kooman, and book/lyrics by Christopher Dimond, Dani Girl has been developed at the Kennedy Center, American Conservatory Theater, the Festival of New American Musicals, and the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Workshop.

Whats so bad about the Big Bad Wolf? At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less. Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker? You be the judge! This tongue-in-cheek version of two childrens favorites uses humor and music to explore our fear of things we dont understand. This is one of our most popular and funniest productions, and includes lots of audience participation. Show runs from July 24 " Aug. 31, 2014.
