The youth theatre ensemble also performed as an assortment of druids, ghouls and zombies.

The Donegal Chamber Orchestra performed a wonderful selection of music including Assorted Horrors by Derek Ball, Grieg’s Aase’s Death from Peer Gynt and the truly spine tingling theme from Hitchcock’s Psycho by Bernard Hermann. A huge thank you to Victor Yélamo for the excellent choice of music.
