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.

Utah Shakespeare Festival Extends Its Season

Located only 45 minutes north of St. George enjoy Tony Award winning theater!

Cedar City, UT – Today the Utah Shakespeare Festival announced that it is extending its current season due to the overwhelming interest from Festival guests and fans in the fall plays. Les Misérables, Hamlet and Stones in His Pockets will run one additional week, through October 27. In addition, the Festival has added new Monday evening performances of Les Misérables on October 1, 8, and 15.

According to Marketing Director Kami Terry Paul, this has been one of the most popular Festival seasons in history with over thirty-five consecutive sold out performances of Les Misérables this summer. “We are right on track to have a record breaking year in ticket sales, and we haven’t even opened Hamlet or Stones in His Pockets yet,” said Paul.

Les Misérables. Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. It focuses on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean as he searches for meaning, love, and redemption in nineteenth century France. The musical includes some of theatre’s most memorable songs: “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” and “Do You Hear the People Sing,” among many others.

Hamlet. Perhaps the greatest play in the English language, Hamlet comes to the indoor Randall Theatre this year for a new look at William Shakespeare’s vision of murder, betrayal, family, love, and loss. The Festival’s 2012 telling of this classic tale will juxtapose Shakespeare’s beautiful and powerful language against the backdrop of an aging medieval castle being renovated by its modern residents (the upper echelon of the kingdom dressed in haute couture clothing). Written at the height of Shakespeare’s career, this powerful examination of the human psyche is his most mature, and chilling, revenge tragedy.

Stones in His Pocket, an audience favorite at the Festival, will return with David Ivers and Brian Vaughn once again playing a host of characters in this tragic, comic, and ultimately surprising tale of two Everymen. At turns hilarious and somber, touching and hugely entertaining, this play centers on Jake and Charlie—and the numerous roles they play onstage and in life. This two-man, fifteen character comedy/drama won raves in 2005 at the Festival and is back by popular demand. Next spring, the show will move as a shared production to Chicago’s Northlight Theatre where it will run from March 8 through April 14, 2013.

Les Misérables, Hamlet and Stones in His Pockets will run until October 27. Additional Monday evening performances of Les Misérables run on October 1, 8, and 15.
