    The Amphitheater Open Mic Night spots fill up so fast every summer - now that we are all home under quarantine, we wanted to throw a Virtual Open Mic to give more people a chance to share their talents with the community! Want to perform? Open Mic videos are submitted via email and we will post our favorites on our social media channels for all to enjoy! Best of all, those who we post will be invited to play on the amphitheater stage later this summer! Here are the rules: 1. We’ll post a theme each week to get your creativity flowing. Themes will include Classic Rock, Country/Bluegrass, 80s/90s, Boy Bands/Girl Groups, Original Songs, and more! 2. Send us a video of your talent to [email protected] Videos should be no longer than 5 minutes. Your video should be something that you would perform at a regular Open Mic Night (singing, instrumental, etc) can be performed on stage. Lip syncs and short tik tok videos should be avoided (although we still love them!). Please include your name, the name of your group if applicable, and phone number with the email 3. All social distancing guidelines should be observed. If you are in a group with people outside of your household, get creative! We’d love to see things like Zoom videos! RSVP to this event to stay up to date with the weekly theme announcements - we'll post our first theme here tomorrow! :)

  • A Midsummer Night's Dream in Vegas on YouTube



    Odyssey Founder and Artistic Director, Derryl Yeager said he knows “everyone is struggling coming up with things to do while cooped up at home, so we here at Odyssey would love to thank you for your support over the years and give you the chance to view our newest production on YouTube. Our treat!" Click here to see the exciting promo video of the show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9kOaTBPsE0&feature=youtu.be View the videos on YouTube here and here. We have sent out the links to thousands of people in our databse and wanted to public to have access to this as well.  "We’re happy to offer this exciting edited version of the show that will give you a chance to watch something other than Contagion on Netflix, bring a smile to your face, and remind us what we can achieve together,” said Yeager. This Shakespearean classic is updated and brought to life in current day Las Vegas. A comedy of errors that includes two couples who hope that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, a Jabberwocky style dance group trying to freshen their act, and two bickering magicians and their impudent sidekick, Puck – with showgirls and casino high jinx galore, something for everyone! Odyssey performed this madcap romp at Kingsbury Hall for four performances February 27th to 29th, 2020, before they were to head out for their 15th consecutive European Tour— filled with shows in a different city every night, standing ovations and encores. Sadly, the tour was cancelled, as so many events have been during these crazy times. Odyssey Dance Theatre is funded, in part, by Zoo, Arts & Parks.

  • Fiddler on the Roof



    Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. With iconic and beloved songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart. Directed by Norm Lister and SGMT rated G.
