Danny Hero is the story of 15-year old teenager Danny McIntyre.  Danny McIntyre lives with his mum, Sheila. But where Danny truly lives is in his head – in a wonderful, colourful fantasy world where he is a powerful superhero sent to Earth from space to defend the human race and fight for all that is true and just. The schoolboy that everyone sees each day, lost in his own little world of comic books and stories, is a brilliant disguise to protect his secret identity! Things happen to Danny until the moment when he finds the strength inside himself to face a real threat in the real world – and save his community and the people closest to him.

4 teams of writers pitched their ideas for new musicals to the community of Corby. Danny Hero was the winning pitch and won a commission from Perfect Pitch and Made in Corby to write the full show and have it produced at The Core, Corby in 2016. Below is footage of the 10 minute pitch: Cast (left to right) George Tebbutt, Victoria Boden, Gary Jerry, Graham Bickley, George Ure, Natalie Douglas, Kim Anderson and Hannah Nuttal. 


Before it’s première in October, Made in Corby recorded a track from the show, featuring Graham Bickley with Corby Male Voice Choir and Deep Roots Tall Trees choir – here’s a video of the track:
