College of Piping – Haunted Theatre
The Celtic Performing Arts Centre at The College of Piping is usually a very vibrant and busy space, filled with performers and musicians using the stage to showcase their talents to full audiences. The venue was ready to host a show earlier this year and the cast was in place for the final rehearsal with some specially invited guests in the crowd. It was an unusually eerie night. The night was dark and quiet, the air was heavy. The performers and guests were ready. The lights were lowered and the show began, but never finished. No one ever left the building, no one really knows what transpired and no bodies were ever found. Then, with the venue being closed for many months, some unruly phantoms took up residence and are ready to welcome you into their Haunted Theatre.
As you may know, theatre staff all over the world tell stories of having ghosts haunting their venues, some are tall tales and some are true, but with our venue being only two years old, could we really have any ghosts haunting it? The Celtic Performing Arts Centre at The College of Piping in fact, has been taken over by ghouls and scary creatures that travelled through a portal during the closure. These macabre residents welcome you to visit them in the Haunted Theatre…if you dare!
Come for a visitation and make friends with our new inhabitants…don’t be afraid of the blood curdling screams you hear in the distance, or the cackling of witches as they conjure up potions from their cauldron, ignore the walking dead…they mean you no harm…probably.
