Danny, King of the Basement
Danny King of the Basement tells the story of Danny 'Delco' Carter, the 'king of moving'. In two years, he and his Mom, Louise, have moved 8 times because there's never enough money to pay the rent. Far from losing hope, Danny makes friends by inspiring the kids around him to turn every challenge into a game. When Danny moves into a basement apartment on upscale Clinton Street, he finds his new friends may have more material things than he does, but they too have problems of their own. But Danny's imagination creates a sense of community that allows his friends to cope with their problems and ultimately to help Danny when he needs them the most! Despite the adversity he faces, Danny takes on each new challenge creatively and with an energetic spirit, inspiring all he meets with his positive outlook, generosity, and humor. Written by David S. Craig, Danny, King of the Basement debuted in 2001 and continues to delight audiences with the power of creative thought to change lives.
