Odyssey Dance Theatre has spent the last two months in rehearsal – not knowing if any Salt Lake Facility would even be open for performances they were planning in March 2021! And on Feb 23rd Odyssey was informed that their normal spring season venue, Kingsbury Hall, will remain closed indefinitely – and so it looked like the whole season would have to be cancelled! Several anxious days followed – until on Feb 26th it was announced that all the large Salt Lake County Arts facilities would be opened for masked and social distanced audiences starting on March 25th! “I jumped on this announcement and found that the Capitol Theatre had yet to be booked on that fateful first weekend – so I booked it!!” says Founder and Artistic Director Derryl Yeager. “We are just so grateful the dancers will have a chance to actually perform and show off their talents they have been working on the last few months! We were ready when the opportunity arose and we Leapt at the Chance to Dance!”

Odyssey Dance Theatre is proud to present the return of ReduxNut-Cracker! As they have successfully done to other great classics such as Giselle and Romeo and Juliet, to rave reviews from across the globe, ODT will bring The Nutcracker to life in the present day, with the original Tchaikovsky score reimagined and arranged in a pop/hip-hop style!
Imagine Clara, as the young lady whose imagination is inspired by the technological advances of today, is drawn into her smartphone to a magical world where Drosselmeyer drives a DeLorean, the soldiers are actually robots, and the gangsta mice have a hip-hop swagga.
If you’ve been to one too many Nutcrackers, then this is the one you will want to see—a reimagined, updated, visual feast full of surprises.
