Last Halloween season, I published a post about the work of Georgette Gaynor, a self-taught monster maker who uses her creepy creations to benefit local charity events in southern Virginia. She's still at it and this time, her life-sized superfreaks are going to the theater!
Gaynor's monsters will be available for bidding and purchase at The New Colony Theater in Portsmouth, VA during the following events:
* The Monster Walks, which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on October 15, 28 and 29. Admission for the walks is $2 per person, and everyone is welcome.
* The Zombie Party, which will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission for the party is $25 per person and $40 per couple, and RSVPs must be made by October 7. Click here to see a copy of the invitation. The Zombie Party is aimed at adults (the dress code is "zombie chic") and it includes a performance by the award-winning Viginia Youth Symphony Orchestra (VYSO), which will perform music from Phantom of the Opera, The Dark Knight, and other selections fit for Halloween.
All 76 of Gaynor's monsters will be at these events, including some new monsters that have been added to her horrific horde since last year. For those who prefer compact creeps, 13 monster heads will also be available. Some of the proceeds will go to VYSO, a non-profit organization devoted to helping young students explore their musical interests.

Scream and scream again!
Close encounters of the Halloween kind.
