The dancing is not going to stop any time soon on Shaftesbury Avenue with the West End spectacular Thriller Live announcing a new booking period to 30 September 2018.

Thriller Live will also welcome several new cast members: lead singers Charlotte Berry, Vivviene Ekwulugo and young MJs Giles Corden and Christian Posso.

Thriller Live is Vivienne Ekwulugo’s West End debut. A singer, songwriter and actress from London, her very first public performance was singing The Jackson 5’s Ben at the age of 11 in a school talent show. Vivienne signed her first record contract at the age of 17, performing as part of a band and as a solo artist.

French singer/actress Charlotte Berry is also making her West End debut in Thriller Live. Signed to Universal Music France, she starred in Avenue Q (French adaptation) and Les Dix Commandements and many more stage shows in France.

Thriller Live is Giles Corden’s second West End show. Now aged 13, he made his debut in the West End at the age of 12 as an original cast member in School of Rock as Lawrence the keyboard player. Giles, along with the other 11 child musicians in the show, won the 2017 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement In Music.

Christian Posso, aged 10, is making his stage and West End debut in Thriller Live.

In further exciting news for the show, Thriller Live creator Adrian Grant, who is also author of the best-selling book, Michael Jackson – The Visual Documentary, was this week honoured with the prestigious Image Award in the Black British Business Awards – the only premium awards programme that recognises, rewards and celebrates exceptional performance and outstanding achievements of black people in businesses operating in Great Britain.

He said: “I am honoured to have won the Image Award at the Black British Business Awards 2017 for setting a record of excellence and making a lasting, significant and positive contribution to the standing of people of African and Caribbean heritage in Britain for the show I created, Thriller Live, and my work with Michael Jackson. Thank you to everyone involved with Thriller Live from the creative and production team to all the crew and cast. Over the past 11 years the show has given an opportunity and work to over 500 different people, and created long lasting relationships. Most of all thank you to Michael Jackson for giving me the opportunity to promote his legacy around the world via the show, the books, MJ Days and first of all the magazine, ‘Off The Wall’, where it began in 1988.”
