Halloween Hits the Stage

 

 

Forget trick-or-treating. It’s time to slip on your creepiest costume and head to see Odyssey Dance Theatre’s production of Thriller at Tuacahn Amphitheatre and Center for the Arts. With a pas de deux for Frankenstein and his bride, some super-funky hip-hopping mummies and a stage full of tap dancing skeletons, this is one performance that will leave you shaking in your boots and begging for more.
