Environment the Musical on RTÉ's Nationwide
The musical featured on RTÉ's Nationwide in August 2015. It features footage from a performance by local children in Letterkenny's An Grianan Theatre and features a short interview with the creator, Annette. Watch the clip below to see kids getting involved in a Tidy Towns beach clean-up and give their thoughts on the important messages they learned from the Environment the Musical songs.
Millview Park is messy and getting worse by the day. Unlike their neighbours in Greenway, the residents of Millview Park have no pride in their neighbourhood and no respect for the environment.
When tourists visit Millview Park the children realise someone has changed their signpost to ‘Messview Park’. This opens their eyes to the sad state of their park and spurs them into positive action.
Environment the Musical is entertaining yet thought-provoking. Suitable for everyone over 8 years (even adults!). Approximate running time 40 minutes.
