Welcome to the MSTDA Thriller

Missing Halloween? Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance (MSTDA) has an answer, and we’re sharing it here with you.

Coronavirus and COVID-19 staggers the nation, but through music and dance, MSTDA shows that communities can fight back.

Lively leadership makes a difference as Exec. Dir. Kristi Towey and Asst. Exec. Kimbirdlee Fadner lead the Thriller dancers.

The Thriller Halloween Dance was a creative take off on Michael Jackson, and Kimbirdlee Fadner played the musical genius. That’s her with the telltale white glove.
