Thriller: A Monster Mashup
The Charleston Ballet Theatre collaborated with The Have Nots in a zombie dance extravaganza at the Charleston Music Hall on Friday, October 28.
Freaks and zombies descended on the Charleston Music Hall on Friday, October 28 for Thriller: A Monster Mashup, a one-night performance and collaboration between The Charleston Ballet Theater, The Have Nots!, and Charleston Stage and What If? star Brian Porter.
The intimate affair drew a crowd of Rocky Horror and Thriller fans of all ages sporting all manor of dress. Zombies, witches, and a couple vampires could be spotted as guests took their seats for what would be a Halloween dance extravaganza.
The mashup featured the backstory of Thriller’s zombies as well as scenes from Rocky Horror Picture Show, but Dr. Frankenfurter stole the show when the bikini-bottomed star serenaded the audience with 'Sweet Transvestite’.
Thriller: A Monster Mashup was a collaboration between The Charleston Ballet Theater and The Have Nots. The Charleston Ballet Theater is currently celebrating its 25th season as a professional dance company. The company, which is directed by Don & Patricia Cantwell and Jill Eathorne Bahr, is the only South Carolina Company licensed to perform the works of the legendary choreographers George Balanchine.
