The Herne Hill Music Festival is looking for a composer interested in writing a musical suitable for performance by primary school pupils (Year 6 probably) in the October 2018 Festival. The musical would need to last for about an hour, and to be based on a story which would engage pupils of that age. In 2017 we will be performing <em>The Frankenstein Teacher</em>, by Simon Speare from the story by Tony Bradman. See our web site for details.

We want to perform a musical for 2018 along similar lines, involving a substantial number of pupils as singers and instrumentalists, supplemented by professionals in key roles.

The project is subject to reaching agreement of a local primary school, and to obtaining grant funding. We expect funding to be confirmed or not by Easter 2018, with the musical available for rehearsals from the start of September 2018.

We are looking for a composer able to travel to London to work with the school concerned.

There will be a fee for the composer.

Composers interested should email their CV, any suggests for a story for the musical, and a statement of the reasons for their interest, to:
