Odyssey Dance Theatre’s acclaimed production Romeo+Juliet – One Funky Tale is back by popular demand for special encore performances, March 9th and 10th, 2021 at Tuacahn Amphitheatre in Ivins, Utah.
From the creator of Thriller comes one of Odyssey Dance Theatre’s favorite and critically acclaimed full-length pieces of all time! See what the Deseret News said was, “…to die for!” Based on the Shakespearean tale about star-crossed lovers, but in the Odyssey tradition: a hip-hop/latin/contemporary dance version! Choreographed by former Odyssey Principal Eldon Johnson, along with sections by Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello from “So You Think You Can Dance,” Derryl Yeager and others, this is a unique and powerful tour de force. And the audience will get to choose their own ending – whether they live or die!
