Danni Hero is the story of 15 year old teenager Danni McIntyre.
Danni lives with her mum, Sheila. But where Danni truly lives is in her head – in a wonderful, colourful fantasy world where she is a powerful superhero sent to Earth from space to defend the human race and fight for all that is true and just.
The schoolgirl that everyone sees each day, lost in her own little world of comic books and stories, is a brilliant disguise to protect her secret identity! Danni struggles on until the moment when she finds the strength inside herself to face a real threat in the real world – and save her community and the people closest to her.
Danni Hero will be performed at Birmingham Hippodrome’s Patrick Studio by the Musical Theatre Youth Programme. Tickets available here: www.birminghamhippodrome.com/calendar/danni-hero/
