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.”

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.

Dixie State College Name Change…what will be the new name?

Dixie State College Name Change…what will be the new name?

Now that Dixie State College is about to earn university status what will be the new name of DSC?

Dixie State University of Course!

Dixie State Colllege, St. George, Utah

Dixie State Colllege, St. George, Utah

“The new name recommendation will advance to the Utah State Board of Regents for approval Friday, Jan. 25th, where it is also anticipated that at that meeting (held at DSC), the Regents will vote to formally approve university status for Dixie State College. The matter will then move on to the Utah State Legislature, where the new name of the institution will be presented for final legislative approval and funding consideration.

“As with stakeholders at large, the Trustees saw the merits of several different naming options, and the majority preferred ‘Dixie State University,’” Chair Caplin continued. “In the end the Board chose to unite as one body. We unanimously stand behind the Dixie State University name and encourage all stakeholders to do the same. This is the time to combine our resources, make our best contributions, and rally around this great institution.”

Congratulations to all those who worked so hard for the past 100 years to help this fine institution become what it is today.  Our many thanks!    (Click here to link to the complete story.)

Regardless of the name the college/univerisity is here to stay and so is the Best Western Coral Hills, one of the best hotels in Southern Utah. Click our our deals page to find specials specificaly for those in association with DSC.

Dickens Festival St. George, Utah – “It’s an Experience”

The Dickens Festival St. George, Utah is back!

Merry Christmas everyone!

We hope everyone’s Christmas holiday will be spent in the best way possible, with family and friends, with good food, good times and good spirits.  

Every year the Dickens’ Festival in St. George is held the first Saturday of every December and the three days before.  And each year abbreviated plays are performed of the musicals “Scrooge” and “Oliver”. Below is a scene from “Scrooge”, in the fateful moment when Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by his past and now ghostly business partner Jacob Marley.  (Jacob is played by Mori Kessler, one of the employees at the Best Western Coral Hills – and we are proud of the great job he did.)

For all our past, present and future guest; as Tiny Tim said:

May God Bless Us, Everyone!

 

 

 

The sights and sounds of 19th Century London come alive at the Dickens’ Christmas Festival.

This Festival is not just another craft show, but a unique and unusual entertainment and shopping experience. Olde English shops, hundreds of period costumes, fortune tellers, orphans, royalty, and the “real” Father Christmas all combine to offer our guests a Christmas experience like no other!

The Festival is known for its unique gifts and quality merchandise. Shoppers come to The Dickens’ Festival for that special treasure. Join us as the streets of Olde London come to life!

Tuacahn’s Indoor Christmas Show – Forever Plaid

 

FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS is a brand-new show that offers the best of FOREVER PLAID tied-up in a nifty package with a big Christmas bow on top! Filled with Christmas standards that have all been “Plaid-erized,” our boys are back to do their Christmas Special. 

At first Francis, Jinx, Smudge, and Sparky aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for another posthumous performance, but a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites like their riotous three minute and eleven second version of “The Ed Sullivan Show” – this time featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, and a Plaid Caribbean Christmas which puts the “Day-O” in Excelsis! This truly “heaven-sent” holiday treat will lift audiences’ spirits and remind youngsters that not all good music has to be auto-tuned. 

Tickets now on sale!

 

Season Schedule

Nov 23 – Dec 29, 2012 in the Cox Auditorium at Dixie State College
Weds, Thurs, Fri & Sat
Evenings – 7:30 PM

Georges Corner Restaurant & Pub

 

 

George Pace owned and operated the Big Hand Café, which stood on this same corner, during the 1930’s and 40’s. The Big Hand Café was the center of town, the gathering spot, the place where news was shared. It quickly became a St. George icon and a stopping place for tourists as they traveled through Southern Utah.

The Greyhound bus would make its one stop in town at the Big Hand and each time it pulled in the waitresses would holler “bus in”, and they would get ready to serve the hungry travelers. Best remembered for its sign of a big hand outlined with blinking lights pointing to the front door and the lit up words “Especially Good Food”. It was easy to find – it was located at the only stop light in town. It was one of the first buildings to be “air cooled”, which was much desired in the hot summers of Southern Utah.

George’s Corner Restaurant celebrates the history of St. George and honors the great men and women who moved to this barren land and made it into a home. As the old sign promised, we serve “Especially Good Food”. George’s Corner is located only one block away from Best Western Coral Hills
