The Death That Keeps on Giving

Filed under: Pop Life — Alex Rawls @ 8:18 am

It took Michael Jackson almost a month to get buried, so it can’t be a surprise that Jackson remains a presence long after his death. So far, the two marching bands that have played halftime at Saints game have dedicated their shows to Jackson material (last weekend, Jackson State included “Remember a Time”). No doubt, we’ll hear more.

On October 24, the Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS) will host the local performance of “Thrill the World” – a worldwide, simultaneous performance of “Thriller.” “Thrill the World” predates Jackson’s death and is in its fourth year – seen here from San Francisco in 2007 – at Zephyr Field, but this year should be particularly significant. It also should be seriously attended after people have seen online the wonder of mass Jackson dancing here, here here and here. 

To dance, you can register online at the JPAS Web site or the day of the event between 11 a.m and 1 p.m. Dancers must be available for a group practice from 4 to 6 p.m., and they need to have a zombie costume for the dance. There won’t be change rooms, so the costume should be easily thrown on.

Admission for the day is  $12 per person and parking is $1. There is a VIP package for $50, and dancers that pre-register online will get in for $10. “Thrill the World” at Zephyr Field benefits JPAS’ youth program, JPAS Jam & Jive Show Choir.
