What a Load of Rubbish

Synopsis

What a Load of Rubbish was conceived and choreographed by Shirley McKechnie as a work for the entertainment and delight of young children but it always enchanted children of all ages, including adults. The set and costumes were designed by the renowned stage designer, Kenneth Rowell.  The choreographer believes that much of the magic of this work stems from his contribution – a tribute to the timeless and ageless joy of ’dressing up’.
