The show takes the stage on July 12th at the Mishler Theatre in Altoona! On today's show, we talk to the musical's composer Michael Kooman as he talks about what inspired him to bring the show to life.

Central PA native Michael Kooman and Chris Dimond are teaming up with The Brian Morden Foundation to present the drama/comedy, "Dani Girl" . Kooman's inspiration behind the musical was his childhood friend, Brian Morden, and his battle with Ewing's Sarcoma.

A synopsis of the musical from Kooman and Diamond's website:
"When Dani, a precocious nine year old, loses her hair to leukemia, she embarks on a magical journey in order to get it back. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, DANI GIRL is a tale of life in the face of death, hope in the face of despair, and the indomitable power of the human imagination."
