Rhyan Michele Adams is a presence both on stage and off. Since earning her Entertainment Business Masters degree in 2010 she has started her own South Carolina production company, Cineman Shots Inc, while continuing to grow her own career as a live performer – most recently with “The Ultimate Thriller: ‘The’ Michael Jackson Tribute.”
The musical hit the road in 2012 and was produced under the guidance of LaVelle Smith, choreographer and principle dancer for three of Jackson’s world tours. During the show a revolving cast recreates iconic moments from the pop star’s history as a music innovator, with Rhyan performing hits from his Jackson 5 era. A longtime fan, she checked in with us recently to share her experiences from the past year of singing his classics across the country.
“It’s surreal still, it took awhile for it to soak in for me,” Rhyan says. “You’ve got thousands of people and they’re there to see you – how cool is that? It’s the closest thing you can get to a Michael Jackson concert considering he’s no longer here with us. I’m thankful for the opportunity.”
The next date for The Ultimate Thriller is scheduled for September 21 in Dallas, Texas, with more shows expected this fall. You can keep an eye on their website for additional details.
