The exciting and versatile Odyssey Dance Theatre is excited to bring its popular Halloween spectacular “Thriller” to several Utah locations.
Says Lisa Browder with Dance Magazine
“(Odyssey Dance Theatre) started opening windows in the dance world, cleaning out the cobwebs and spinning a new creation. Odyssey sets itself apart in two ways: by its humor and by its requirement that each dancer be equally proficient in contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, tap, Irish Highland, ballroom, ballet … Odyssey Dance Theatre, quite simply, is a thriller.”
Then it seems only natural that Halloween’s “Thriller” be a part of their repetoire.
” …creating an amazing show from a series of Halloween-themed vignettes, “Thriller” has beocme a smash hit. Says Darrel Yeager, Artistic Director of Odyssey Dance Theatre, “I believe the thing that makes “Thriller” unique is that we take all your favorite Halloween characters and place them into a different tongue-in-cheek setting and context. There’s a lot of humor in the show, laugh out loud humor that audiences love. Nothing is left out, from Jason impersonations, to skeletons, to the use of chain saws. As the dancers tell it, the program is a scream and always gets a standing ovation.”
