    Michael Jackson is gone, but his music and dance moves live on in a whole array of stage shows.

    Most famously, there is the Tony-winning “MJ the Musical” on Broadway.

    And there are tribute shows, including the confidently named “Invincible: A Glorious Tribute to Michael Jackson,” which comes to the Garde Arts Center on Saturday.

    Based on the videos on the production’s website featuring songs from “Thriller” to “Bad,” the soundalikes and dance-duplicates ARE pretty damned good at their jobs.

    The cast is led by Pete Carter serving as the “Dancing Michael” and Jeffrey Perez, as the “Singing Michael.”

    “Invincible: A Glorious Tribute to Michael Jackson,” 8 p.m. Saturday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; $39 to $75 plus fees; (860) 444-7373, gardearts.org.
