Compost: The (mini-)Musical – World Première!

Pupils from Years 7 and 9 at Bootham School in York received rapturous applause yesterday (4 July 2007) for their world première of Compost: the (mini-)Musical, which they performed as part of the school’s Globe Day Carnival.  The pupils worked very hard to learn the musical from scratch in under an hour and a half.

I’d like to thank the following people for making the performance possible:

  • Keely Mellor and John Cossham from York Rotters, at St Nicks, for training me in the art of compost making
  • Keely – again – for commissioning me to write ‘something about composting’
  • Catherine Bamford of York Rotters, for transporting compost bins and coming along with me on the day
  • Sarah Allen from Bootham School, for inviting me to come and take part in their inspiring Globe Day
  • All the pupils who took part, and who performed the musical with such gusto! I hope they build and tend their compost heaps with equal commitment and gusto.

Remember: Think global – Compost local!
