No stranger to the world of theatre - the rehearsal hall, the pit, or the stage - Danny has been involved with productions ranging from the classic "West Side Story" to modern melodramas such as Norm Symonds' blues opera "Lady In The Night".

His Broadway show credits include "The King and I", "Joseph", "Grease", and "The Wizard of Oz", all at Toronto's Sony Centre (former Hummingbird Centre) as well as more recent hits such as Barry Manilow's "Copacabana", "Forbidden Hollywood", "Forever Plaid", and "The Producers."
He supported Toronto's Jackie Richardson in Richard Ouzounian's cabaret production of "Mabel" (the Mabel Mercer story) at The Top of the Senator, and in "Dinah, Blues of the Queen", a look at the life of Dinah Washington.

Danny is entering his eighth year as musical director for the Oakville Children's Music Theatre (www.ocmt.on.ca), presenting performances of such favourites as "Anne of Green Gables", "Tom Sawyer" and "The Music Man."
Other youth theatre credits include "Oliver", with W.E.S.T. Productions at the Oakville Centre for the Arts and "High School Musical" with the Oakville Academy for the Arts (www.oakvilleacademy.com).
