Halloween for Adults

Halloween isn’t only for children!  Adults, sitting in your recliner at home, waiting for trick-or-treaters, and mindlessly munching on cheap candy is no longer your only option.  Here are some ideas that will help you get into the spirit of the season without feeling like a fool…..but by all means, feel free to come in costume.

Utah Shakespeare Festival presents “Dial M for Murder”

In London, 1952, the wealthy Margot Wendice has convinced her professional tennis player husband, Tony, to give up playing to spend more time with her. He now sells sports equipment, and, to Margot, their life together is a happy one. However, he has discovered that while he was on a tennis tour in the United States several years ago, Margot had an affair with an American murder mystery writer named Max Halliday.

Because he wants revenge as well as her money, Tony meticulously plans Margot’s murder. She has no idea that Tony knows of her past affair, nor does she have any suspicion that he planning to kill her. Max comes to London to visit the couple, and Tony uses this as the opportunity to fulfill his plan.

Tony blackmails a man who calls himself Captain Lesgate, a former schoolmate and convicted criminal, to carry out the scheme. They plan what they believe is the perfect murder. But when Margot refuses to play the part of the victim, things go much differently than planned.

Oct. 22, 24-29, 31  Tuacahn Ampitheatre presents “Thriller”

If Odyssey Dance Theatre’s “Thriller” isn’t part of your yearly Halloween tradition, it should be. The spooky spectacular combines technical aspects of dance while paying homage to the stars of All Hallows’ Eve.

Throughout the two-hour program, “Thriller” highlights all the heroes of the season, including Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, skeletons, mummies and werewolves. But among the ghouls, you’ll find other unlikely heroes of Halloween, such as Bubbles the Clown and the “Giggle Girl,” who sings and maniacally laughs her way through songs such as “I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus.”
