Odyssey Dance Theatre's Thriller is back to spook and scare

A 20-year-old Utah tradition, Thriller by Odyssey Dance Theatre returns this month to local theaters across the state. Fan-favorite numbers, including “Thriller,” “The Curse of the Mummy,” “Frankenstein” and many more, are all set to return during this Halloween season. Thriller will be performed in six venues across Utah with two full casts. From Logan to St. George, Provo to Salt Lake City, Thriller is now a shared experience for all Utahns to enjoy. Salt Lake City’s performances will be held at Kingsbury Hall, October 7-29.

“This show has become a phenomenon!” says Artistic Director Derryl Yeager. “Now in its 20th year, it has grown tremendously in popularity, and we are busy performing the show throughout the entire month! For the tenth year in a row, we’ve had to hire two separate casts to fill the amazing demand; and each year, we have unprecedented numbers of children audition to be a part of our Halloween hit.”

Tickets to Thriller range from $30 to $50 and are eligible for discounts, depending on location and seating. Those who are frugal about their festive fun can also buy discounted tickets to Odyssey Dance Theatre’s entire 2016-2017 season through subscription packages. The package includes tickets to Thriller, ReduxNut-Cracker, Let It Be, MJ and Purple Rain.

Odyssey Dance Theatre is a local dance company, providing employment for local professional dancers with the mission to open the world of dance to a broader audience. The company has been voted Best in State of all Arts and Entertainment in 2007 and 2015 and has won many other awards for their choreography and individual dancers. Touring across the country, Odyssey Dance Theatre concludes many of their shows with standing ovations, especially while performing their hit Thriller.
