They’re changing the cast at Thriller Live with eight new dancers joining the 15th Longest Running Musical in West End history – all making their West End stage debuts.

The youngsters joining the cast this week are on 12-month contracts that will see them in the show when it starts its 10th anniversary West End celebrations at the Lyric Theatre in January 2018. They include Peter Cleverley, Brett Baxter, Shakara Brown, Joel Ekperigin, Jamie Mason, Ella Redhead, Emma Jane Smith and Jorgia Vaughan.

Gary Lloyd, Thriller Live’s award-winning director and choreographer, said:

“Dancers are the beating heart of our production, and with over 30 iconic Michael Jackson songs and epic dance routines, Thriller Live is one of the most physically demanding productions ever seen in the West End. We work hard to maintain the highest of standards as we deliver routines based on iconic moves created by the greatest entertainer of all time, who himself always strived for excellence and pushed the physical limits of what his body could produce. I am thrilled and excited at the quality of our new dancers whose energy and committment to the memory of Michael Jackson is inspirational. This show is a gift to anyone that lives to dance and for anyone that loves to entertain or be entertained.”


Thriller Live plays the Lyric Theatre and is currently booking until 1 April 2018. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
