THRILLER LIVE stars transform Kentish Town Primary School Pupils into Halloween zombies at the Lyric Theatre, London, while the theatre itself is transformed into a spooky lair by St Charles’ Sixth Form.

London, 28th October 2014: As a Halloween treat, 20 pupils from Kentish Town Primary School, Camden were transformed into flesh-eating zombies on stage in the West End, where they performed Michael Jackson’s iconic dance moves alongside THRILLER LIVE star David Jordan to an audience of parents and carers.  The children, many of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds or have physical disabilities and autism, are supported by Variety, the Children’s Charity,  which provides positive experiences for sick, disabled or disadvantaged children and young people.

Alongside ‘Michael Jackson’, played by David Jordan, the dance workshop was led by THRILLER LIVE cast members Stefan Sinclair and Lauren Gore. Professional stage cosmetics company Charles Fox provided the make-up to complete the children’s transformation into the ghouls and the undead from the show with the support of local professional face-painters.

David Jordan said of the event, “The Thriller dance was ground-breaking and everyone has, at some point, tried to impersonate the Michael Jackson moves.  It’s been fantastic to be able to share our skills with the children and give them the opportunity to experience the magic of transformation on Halloween.”

Variety, the Children’s Charity, has supported the children of Kentish Town Primary School for 15 years. The school caters for 252 children between the ages of 3 and 11 years from disadvantaged backgrounds, some with physical disabilities and autism.variety

Meanwhile, the Lyric theatre itself was transformed by St Charles’ Catholic Sixth Form’s learning support class. Walking into the foyer, audiences are engulfed in a spooky cavern of cobwebs, jack-o-lanterns and bats on the ceiling, while downstairs ghoulish portraits and eerie candelabras adorn pillars and tables around a pathway leading to a nightmarish land… The students took on the project at school, then visited the theatre on multiple occasions to get their display just right – and perfectly creepy.
