Dandi Productions has been creating and touring Symphony Orchestra Concerts for Young Audiences since 1997. The company produced the North American Premieres of three of Roald Dahl’s fully-orchestrated concert-stories: Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; and produced the World Premieres of three more original concerts: The Twins and the Monster, The Mysterious Maestro; and Symphonic Sorcery – The Music of Harry Potter. For the creation of each concert, the company has brought together the talents of master puppeteers The Old Trout Puppet Workshop: award-winning authors Tololwa Mollel & Judd Palmer (Governor-General’s Awards for Young Fiction); world-class composers John Estacio (National Arts Centre Award for Composers) and Dave Pierce (Grammy Award for Musical Direction of the 2010 Olympics); as well as skilled designers and top-tier actors.
In the past three years, Dandi has expanded its performing market beyond North America to Great Britain, South East Asia and Australia. The company now has a global audience stretching from Manchester, UK to Perth, Australia.
