Odyssey Dance Theatre Thriller Experience

thriller odyssey dance theatrethriller 3

If you want to do something fun this Halloween, you should see Odyssey Dance Theatre’s Halloween hit, Thriller!

I had the opportunity to attend Thriller, and I loved the atmosphere because the entertainment began when we first arrived. There were zombies walking around Kingsbury Hall, sneaking up behind people, and scaring them. It was quite entertaining to watch them scare people. Before the show, my husband and I walked around taking photos of me and the zombies. Don’t worry, I didn’t get too scared.

I enjoyed all of the dance numbers this year, and I especially loved watching the professional dancers, probably because it reminded me of my dancing days years ago. These professional dancers have incredible talent! One of the dances that I really enjoyed was The Curse of the Mummy. The maidens at the beginning of the dance were so graceful and elegant, and when the mummies started dancing it was high-energy and fun.

Another dance I enjoyed was Jason Jam. Instead of music, they used knives, baseball bats, chain saws & more to keep the beat. Plus, it was really funny how one of the three Jason’s would constantly start doing his own thing and not pay attention to what he was supposed to be doing. He kept everyone laughing.

One of the special numbers that Odyssey brought to the performance this year was an aerial artist who has trained with Cirque du Soleil and other circus trainers. It was amazing and beautiful as the aerialist used long cloth curtains to hold herself above the stage as she spun around in the air.

This year’s show has all of the favorite pieces from the past including Thriller, The Curse of the Mummy, Dem Bones, Frankenstein, Jason Jam, Salem’s Mass, The Lost Boys, and the River of Blood Dance. Plus, there’s more than just dancing! The evening is full of frights and scares, and you’ll even get a lot of laughs out of it too. Special guest, Bubbles the Clown, had everyone laughing.

Odyssey Dance Theatre is performing Thriller at Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City through November 2 and at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre in Ivins through November 1. Tickets cost between $25-$45. To purchase tickets, go to Odyssey Dance Theatre and click on “Buy Tickets” under the location of your choice. If you are interested in going, I recommend purchasing tickets now because the performances sell out fast. Head over to Odyssey Dance Theatre’s site to watch the Thriller trailer and to find out more information about the performances.

 

Odyssey Dance Theatre provided me with tickets to see Thriller and in return I wrote a review. All opinions are my own.
