Thriller returns for Halloween at Tuacahn

thriller1

Enjoy at haunting time at Tuacahn

 

Thriller, performed by Odyssey Dance Theater.

If Odyssey Dance Theatre’s “Thriller isn’t part of your yearly Halloween tradition, it should be. The spooky spectacular combines technical aspects of dance while paying homage to the stars of All Hallows’ Eve.

Throughout the two-hour program, “Thriller” highlights all the heroes of the season, including Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, skeletons, mummies and werewolves. But among the ghouls, you’ll find other unlikely heroes of Halloween, such as Bubbles the Clown and the “Giggle Girl,” who sings and maniacally laughs her way through songs such as “I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus.”

Critics agree that Odyssey Dance Theatre is nothing short of spectacular:

“Compelling dance performed to perfection! Young, trim, slim, and athletic…Great fun!” –The Spectrum

“Odyssey’s Thriller”..a delightful “Dance Macabre”….As for humor, there were bucket loads. Laughs abounded during a “Romeo & Juliet” inspired “Frankenstein & Frankenstein” and “Jason Jam,” a work that used a lot of percussive dancing, a la “Stomp”, that spotlighted three “Friday the 13th” villains dancing with ice picks, machetes and, of all things, chain saws. The whole idea was cool…” — Scott Iwasaki, Deseret News.

Pioneer Day

July 24th is Pioneer Day and a Utah state holiday.  REMEMBER that banks and government offices will be closed. It commemorate the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into Utah’s Salt Lake Valley in 1847. This day celebrates the bravery of the original settlers and their strength of character and physical endurance.

Background

This day commemorates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into Utah’s Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. The Mormon pioneers viewed their arrival as the founding of a Mormon homeland, hence Pioneer Day. The Mormons, as they were commonly known, left their settlement in Nauvoo, Illinois, and journeyed west seeking refuge from religious persecution. The final impetus for their trek was the murder of founder and prophet Joseph Smith on June 27, 1844.

Determined to settle in an isolated region, the pioneers made their way across the plains and over the Rocky Mountains to Utah. They lost many of their party to disease during the winter months. By the time that they reached Utah, the desolate valley was a welcome sight. Potatoes and turnips were soon planted, and a dam was built. With solemn ceremonies, the settlers consecrated the two-square-mile city, and sent back word that the “promised land” was found. By the end of 1847, nearly 2000 Mormons settled in the Salt Lake Valley. The first Pioneer Day was celebrated in 1849 with a parade, band music and speeches. In modern times July 24 is celebrated annually as Pioneer Day, a state holiday, in Utah.

With its warm, blue waters and red sandstone landscape, Utah’s newest state park is also one of its most popular. Boat and fish on Sand Hollow Reservoir, explore and ride the dunes of Sand Mountain

The sprawling 20,000-acre park, which rests mostly on USDI Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, rivals Utah’s two largest state parks – Wasatch Mountain and Antelope Island. Sand Hollow already one of the most visited destinations in the Utah State Park system, with recreation opportunities for nearly every user from boaters to bikers, and OHV riders to equestrians.

A favorite destination for local off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts, Sand Mountain provides 15,000 acres of perfectly sculpted dunes. The red sand is an incredible backdrop for Sand Hollow reservoir. At nearly twice the size of nearby Quail Creek Reservoir, Sand Hollow offers boating and other water recreation in a spectacular setting.

Sand Hollow is located approximately 15 miles east of St George and seven miles east of the I-15 Hurricane Exit. Visitors should exit I-15 at Exit 16 (Highway 9), travel east for about four miles and turn right on Sand Hollow Road, travel south for about three miles and turn left at the park entrance.

Opened to the public as a state park in 2003. Park Elevation: 3,000 feet Park Acreage: 20,000 Surface Water Acreage: 1,322 Sand Mountain OHV Acreage: 6,000

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat shows at Tuacahn

Joseph_logo

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat


The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this exciting musical which will entertain Tuacahn audiences of all ages.  Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh, Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.


Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

What to Bring When Cooking Outdoors With Kids

Summer is upon us! Those months spent wading through slosh and slush, checking outside to see if we need to bring a hoodie or a -30 degree parka just to get to work are over! For those of you who don’t live where snow comes, you don’t know how lucky you have it. But for the rest of us summer is a welcome respite of warm and relaxation, where going outdoors is a must, and cooking outdoors is an absolute joy.

So if summer inspires you and your family to cook outdoors, you should learn a few tricks on how to make the experience a truly memorable one, maybe even one that will carry you through next winter. Cooking on the grill may look fun, but it takes a little more effort than just turning on your kitchen stove and going for it. Cooking outdoors can be done with a gas or a charcoal grill or even on an open campfire (only for the brave among us).

CAMPING

Gather All Your Camping Supplies

There is a big difference between cooking on in backyard and cooking on a campsite. If you are just having a small barbeque on your own yard, it wouldn’t be too hard to just get your supplies inside the house. But if you are camping or on a picnic, it would be a good idea to make sure that you have all the necessary supplies before you head off to your destination.

There’s nothing more discouraging than arriving at the campground away from home — and probably far away from stores as well — only to realize that you have forgotten to bring the charcoal! Or if you forgot the excess water so you didn’t have anything at hand to put out the fire? Therefore, you should make sure to bring charcoal (enough of it) and fire extinguisher.

Most Essential Item For Cooking Outdoors With Kids

Buckets are very useful for any kind of outdoor activities. They can be used to keep your other supplies within easy reach, and when it rains all you have to do is grab the buckets (with everything inside them) and head for cover. Having buckets make for useful items especially when camping with kids, you just never know when you’ll need a seat, a place to put wet clothing, or a spot to keep capture frogs!

If you are going to cook on an open fire, you must be ready to kneel on the ground. You can make it a comfortable task by bringing along a kneeling cushion. It will not take too much space in your car and it would keep you scrape and scar free. After all if you’re camping with children you’re going to want to be focused on them not falling into the fire, as opposed to how much your knees are hurting at the moment.

Setting up a small kitchen is also a good idea when camping. All you will need is a folding table, a cooler, and a storage drawer (foldable or stackable). A utility cart will let you have a mini kitchen. The good thing about a utility cart is that it comes with wheels for easy maneuvering.

Serving trays are essentials that you shouldn’t forget to bring as well. You can also use your cutting board as a serving tray, but it is always better to bring extras because your kids can also use them to place their plates and glasses on when eating.

Best Outdoor Cooking Tools

Large bowls should also be included on your list, you would be slicing and cutting food items and there should be clean containers to put them in. Bowls are needed for the cooked meals and for collecting scraps for easy waste disposal.

A cast iron teapot is a flexible kitchen or camping accessory. The material is durable enough to withstand any temperature and you can place it directly in the open fire or you can also set it up on top of the grill. Brew tea or coffee, or you can also make dessert using your cast iron teapot.

Cleaning tools and materials should not be forgotten. It would be easy to tell yourself to leave the cleaning once you get home. But imagine the other chores that you need to do at home, and then think about adding cleaning the grill with those chores. It would be a better idea to clean your grill while still outdoors. You can make the task a bit easier by using a cleaning block. This cleaning tool is made of recycled glass that works great at clearing your grill off ashes and dirt.

My favorite of favorites is a cast iron pan, you can put them right on the fire or coals and be off to the races. They cook evenly and are just the perfect instrument when cooking outdoors. My kids most-liked dish is fajitas cooked in the old cast iron, trust me you’ll never have a fajitas like you’ll have when you’re camping because everything tastes better camping.
