Next week, Thriller Live will be celebrating its 4,000th performance in the West End – a record-breaking run at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftsbury Avenue. To mark this momentous occasion, the cast will be joined by some very special guests to rock with you for one night only. And believe us, you won’t be able to beat it.
On Wednesday 12 September, Peter Andre, Russell Kane, Jon Culshaw and Kieran Alleyne will star in Thriller Live along with the regular cast for a Gala Charity Performance in aid of The Prince’s Trust. The guest stars from the world of music and entertainment will host and perform Michael Jackson tracks throughout the evening for an epic evening of entertainment.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Prince’s Trust and the gala night will launch a year-long partnership and commitment to help provide tickets, workshops and a mentoring programme.
About joining the cast for this special performance, Peter Andre said: “Michael Jackson was musically the biggest influence in my life and career. He made me dream of being on stage and to be part of music. I am thrilled to join the cast of Thriller Live for this special night to raise money for The Prince’s Trust.”
Among the famous faces is Kieran Alleyne who won the coveted role of the young Michael Jackson in Thriller Live when he was 13 in 2018. He will be returning to the show as the lead MJ singer and dancer. Last year he was one third of the group 3AM who reached the finals of The X Factor.
