"Thriller", by the Odyssey Dance Theatre was presented. We were prepared for a scary afternoon and the theatre was filled with lots of children. Although the dancers were wonderful, some of the material could not be considered entertainment. One number had a line of dancers, and a masked man with a gun came out on stage and began to shoot them, and continued until they were all "dead". Another number had a girl begin to sing, and again, a masked gunman shot her. It was terrible to witness and terrible to hear some of the audience laugh - although not many. In July 2012, 12 people were shot dead in a theatre in Colorado - for REAL. This can't possible be entertainment. Shame on you Egyptian Theatre. I expected better from you. WARNING: If you attend with children, call ahead to assess appropriate material.

Thank you for your heartfelt review of Thriller, by Odyssey Dance Theatre, which was presented at the Egyptian Theatre on its annual tour throughout the state of Utah.

I am sorry you felt the material offensive and not entertaining. Much of what you referred to was meant to spoof classic horror films, adding a silly edge to the original premises with highly-skilled dancing. This is the fourth year Thriller has sold out every evening show at our theatre, and it performs to sold out audiences state-wide.
We strive to provide a variety of entertainment options on our small stage, and host various acts from comedy to concerts, theatre to dance, plus YouTheatre. Hopefully next time you are in town you will find a show more appropriate to your tastes.
I assure you, as the Marketing Director, Thriller was thoroughly advertised with a parental warning that the show "may not be appropriate for children under 7. Please use parental discretion for children under 12". That said, we know the audience is full of children who return year after year.
