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.”

DOCUTAH is a Southern Utah International Film Festival presented by Dixie State University in St. George. The 2013 festival will be it’s fourth year of run. Phil Tuckett, DOCUTAH Artistic Director and Director of the DSU Film Program planted the seed of DOCUTAH in 2009. A small group of individuals went to work to create the inaugural event in September of 2010. Since then we’ve had more than 800 films submitted from 60 plus countries and enjoyed meeting many wonderful filmmakers. These filmmakers are among festival attendees who come for the films, stay for the scenery and depart having experienced inspiration. DOCUTAH welcomes the world and at the same time embraces the community of Southern Utah.
