The Sandbox Collective presents "DANI GIRL" a musical good for the soul

Manila’s newest performing arts collective, The Sandbox Collective, will be mounting the groundbreaking musical good for the soul, played at sold-out houses Off-Broadway, fringe theater festivals and regional theaters across Australia, Canada, and the United States. Now here in the Philippines, a provocative new musical by Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond,  “DANI GIRL”, an uplifting and inspiring story about a nine year-old girl battling with leukemia. The show will run for 15 performances from July 11-27, 2014 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City. 

The journey of a Dani Lyons (Rebecca Coates) who loses all her hair due chemo therapy because her cancer has returned after three years of being remission. But instead of sitting back and letting her condition take over her, she goes on an imaginary quest together with her guardian angel Raph (alternating role Lorenz Martinez and Reb Atadero), her film-obsessed roommate Marty (Luigi Quesada), and her teddy bear Mr. Fritzto (Chester), to find the answer to the question, “Why is cancer?”.

We are very privileged to be re-imagining this bold, new musical for our local audiences,” shares Toff de Venecia, The Sandbox Collective managing artistic director and “Dani Girl” director (whose credits include Ateneo Blue Repertory’s Little Shop of Horrors for which he was nominated “Best Director” for Broadway World Philippines, 13 the Musical, A New Brain, and 9 Works Theatrical’s You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Repertory Philippines’ Wait Until Dark as assistant director). “The songs are beautifully crafted; the story, a bit dark but positively uplifting; and the production, promising to stretch you to the limits of your imagination. This is theater for new audiences.”

Let us all join Dani Girl onstage as she shows from her child’s point of view, also it discusses universally salient themes such as life in the face of death, hope amidst despair, and the peerless power of a child’s imagination. I'm pretty sure this
 musical good for the soul.
