Only 3 days left to register!

Virtual Performance

Danny, King of the Basement tells the story of 10-year-old Danny "Delco" Carter. Danny is the "king of moving." In two years, he and his mother, who is dealing with unemployment, have moved more times than most kids lose teeth. But far from being overcome by his homelessness, Danny appears to be thriving. When Danny moves into a basement apartment on upscale Clinton Street, the kids he meets have more material things, but they seem to have bigger problems than just being hungry.This heartwarming story about a boy who creates an imaginary world to deal with the instability and hardship of his daily life is a powerful, yet playful, production that truthfully explores issues related to child poverty and homelessness and ultimately demonstrates how the power of friendship can change lives.

Content including housing insecurity, parental separation, and financial difficulties inspire great family discussion, but may be challenging concepts for children under seven. The provided study guide can help parents facilitate conversations about the show with children.
