The three R's used to be Reading, 'Riting, and 'Rithmetic, but today everyone must learn Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. That is what audiences discover in this hilarious musical comedy that brings a garbage dump to hip hopping, finger popping life. Designed for high school and community players, the cast can be expanded and sets, puppets, and props can be created out of recyclables.
"Children will delight in this creative production of song, dance and folklore! –Dr. Noel Brown, UN Environment Program
The Garbage Cantata was commissioned and first produced by Jon Burt & River Barge Productions, Inc. at the Edgewood Resort in Alexandria Bay, New York, on July 29, 1991.
