In 2006, ‘Thriller Live’ moonwalked into the West End after three acclaimed UK tours and standing ovations across Europe. Currently playing at the Lyric Theatre, as well as simultaneously touring the world, award-winning director Gary Lloyd’s ‘Thriller Live’ brings to life the sensational dancing and distinctive sound of Michael and the Jackson 5.
Ever dreamed of performing Michael’s hits in theatres and arenas across the world? Now is your chance, as the production has announced that auditions will be taking place for the West End, UK and International Touring companies of ‘Thriller Live’ in New York and Los Angeles this month!
Accompanied by the show’s creative team who will be flying over from the UK, Duncan Stewart and Benton Whitley of Duncan Stewart and Company will be auditioning for the five principle roles, including three male vocalists, one woman vocalist and one male child for each company, for a total of fifteen spots. Vocal prowess is emphasised and those auditioning are encouraged to prepare a song either from Michael’s catalogue or one in a similar style that can show range.
