Join us October 27th to honor the life of Danny Hanemann

Danny Hanemann, long-time Playmakers lover, passed away on August 6th of this year. His memory will be honored and his life will be celebrated on Saturday, October 27th from 1-4pm at Playmakers Theatre.

Danny was a powerfully moving actor with a fervent passion for the stage and a deep love for Playmakers theatre. Under the direction of Frank Levy, he played a stunning Stanley Kowalski in the Playmakers rendition of a Streetcar Named Desire. He built sets, hung lights, did construction on the theatre and trod the boards in countless Playmakers productions including Kismet, I Ought to Be In Pictures, the Gin Game, Oliver Twist and many others. His wife, Marcelle Hanemann, and his daughter, Brook Hanemann, would like to extend a warm invitation to anyone wishing to join in the loving final send-off scheduled on 10/27.

We will gather at 1pm for a casual period of visiting after which we will take to the stage to share stories and words of love. Brook will put together a lineup of anyone wishing to speak. If you’d like to contribute, please email her at

We would also like to extend deep and heartfelt gratitude to the board of directors for so graciously allowing this celebration to happen in such a wonderfully fitting space.

Brook Hanemann
