THRILLER returns to Tuachan, near St. George, Utah

THRILLER returns to Tuacahn, near St. George, Utah

October 25 – Nov 1 See Calendar For Times

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.”

Click HERE for Odyssey Dance Theater, Thriller

Click HERE for a THRILLER preview!

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.

Whenever you stay with the Best Western Coral Hills show your ticket stubs for the event and receive a 10% discount.

Halloween Zombie Run!

Zombie Run! Come participate in the Halloween 5K … as if zombies could run a 5K. 

zombie 5k2

Zombie Run 5K

What do Runners do in a Zombie Run? The survival area will be the old St. George airport.  A secure course was set up as a survival area but is has been overrun. Runners will be given a life belt containing two life-tags (flags) which the Zombies will try and steal from you.  Cross the finish line with at least one tag and consider yourself a winner…and alive. There will be obstacles to participate in or they can be bypassed. Tip: Runners who participate in obstacles will get a chance to grab new life tags if they complete the challenge. Be one of the first to cross the line with at least one tag and you’ll also win something.  C’mon what’s a race if you don’t win something for being one of the first to cross the finish line alive? Lose them both and well…you’re toast. You can still finish as a dead man though.  Join the festivities at the end, dead or alive.

Held at the old abandoned St. George Airport St. George, Utah just minutes away from Best Western Coral Hills.

Zombie Run 5K

No runners were actually harmed/bitten in the Zombie Run 5K

So, what do the Zombies do? Your goal for the duration of the race is to take lives and have fun doing it.  On the day of the race you will be transformed into a Zombie and given your area and assignment.  Some will be chaser Zombies and some will be creeper Zombies. A chaser does just that, chases the runners.  A creeper scares the runner and distracts while another creeper or chaser steals a life from the runner’s belt.  Unfortunately you may not tackle, hold or hug the participants and please absolutely not biting (sorry vampire wannabes this is a zombie run). Once the race is over come join us at the finish line for the after party.

At the Best Western Coral Hills we help y0u celebrate the Labor Day weekend offering the best we have to offer.  What kind of Labor Day would it be if you didn’t go swimming?  We have TWO POOLS and spas to help with that.  Is it Labor Day without going out to eat even once?  We have 13 restaurants within 3 blocks to help that happen.  All American fare on Labor Day?  YES, that is something that cannot be missed…and Iceberg’s shakes, burgers and fries are just on the corner from us.  Need to get the shopping bug out of your system?  You know what?  We have several great , unique shops and, art studios just moments away…walking OR driving.

Curious about the origins of Labor Day?  HERE is one history of the holiday compiled by About.com. There’s even a quiz at the bottom for the kids who are out of school today and miss their homework.

Whatever you do this Labor Day, do it safe, have fun, enjoy family and come back to us soon.
