For over 25 years, the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts has provided a world-class education to students within our community and around the world.

Building on the vision of our late founder Scott MacAulay, the College now enters into a new era of excellence. We have already raised initial funding of $2,700,000 and designed a modern facility that will provide new opportunities for enhanced learning, culture, and community.

The new Performing Arts Education Centre is equipped to facilitate the growing needs of students, faculty, and programming. Each space is carefully designed to invite hard work, inspire dedication and provide opportunity to o er more programming — and to more students — than ever before.

We invite you, our neighbors, to join us in a combined e ort of public, private and corporate partnership to make this project a reality. Let’s work together and empower generations to come. Let’s work together and build the Performing Arts and Education Centre.

Four Tellers – The Last Laugh




After three years of playing to packed houses in Georgetown and other theatres across the island The Four Tellers are back for another summer of storytelling in a show called The Last Laugh.
As in previous years the show is comprised, for the most part, of four friends and master-storytellers, Denny King, Gary Evans, Alan Buchanan and David Weale, sitting around a table swapping stories of the island that invariably have the audience roaring with laughter, or sometimes, brushing aside a tear.
Also, woven into the storytelling are the sparkling musical arrangements of Rachael Beck and Bennett Buell.
The unique charm of the tellers is the spontaneous, unscripted quality of the show which allows the audience to feel they are right there, in the kitchen, as the stories roll out, one drawing the next, like tissues out of a box.

As one reviewer, Gordon Cobb, wrote: “between the hoots and the hollers and the almost tears, there is the feeling in the theatre of being fully human. And fully alive. Catch it while you can.”
Because, after all, it is called, the last laugh!
