Dani Petersen

An indefatigable proponent of Musical Theatre, Dani is a self-taught Creator/Writer/Composer of Musicals, a passion sparked by “Annie” at the Market Theatre in 1978. “Coming from the Cape Flats, this momentary access to Musical Theatre was life-changing…My Heart Moved!” she says. Her desire to recreate this experience led to “Eve’s Mark” (2015) followed by a Showcase of “Bakgat n Dingetjie”; her first multi-lingual work at the Cape Town Fringe Festival (2017). Dani launched Musicals Move Mountains in 2020 to #MoveHearts through Musicals.
