What is Environment the Musical?
A quick overview of the Environment the Musical resource pack in less than 60 seconds!
When a group of young people observe their neighbourhood through the eyes of tourists, they are greatly embarrassed by the mess they see. Their friends from Greenway help them restore 'Messview Park' back to Millview Park.
Tidy Towns volunteers also lend a hand and everyone learns about the problems with litter, dog fouling and fly-tipping. Recycling is explained and the friends decide to host a fashion show where everyone models ‘trash’ clothes and accessories.
Environment the Musical is entertaining yet thought-provoking. Suitable for everyone over 8 years (even adults!). Approximate running time 40 minutes.
