Lyric Theatre, home of Thriller Live, gets ghoulish makeover for Halloween

Theatre news

TO CELEBRATE Halloween and the forthcoming 30th anniversary of the worldwide release of the iconic Thriller album on November 30, the Lyric Theatre, home of Thriller Live, is getting a ghoulish makeover.

As many of you will already know, Thriller Live superbly recreates the album’s title track.

Two groups of art students from West Thames College London and St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College are decorating the theatre bars with spooky, chilling themes.

Cast members are joining in the devilish fun by carving pumpkins that will be displayed in the upper circle bar.

The theatre will have its Halloween makeover from Friday, Octoberr 26 to Sunday, November 4, 2012. Theatre ushers will be dressed as witches and devils and will hand out spooky treats to theatregoers at the end of the show.

On Halloween itself – Wednesday, October 31 – 50 children from Holmleigh School in Hackney in association with the Variety Club of Great Britain, have been invited for an afternoon of fun, chills and thrills.

They will watch a short performance by the cast, followed by zombie face painting courtesy of students from Delamar Academy and freelance makeup artist Shaz Imani and then learn some wicked zombie moves at a Thriller dance workshop. They will then perform on the Lyric Theatre stage.

NB: Joe McElderry, Macy Gray and Stooshe are to join Thriller Live for one night only - Thursday, November 15 – for Pop Goes The Musical 2012, when each will separately put their own spin on a Michael Jackson classic.

Now in its fourth year in the West End, Thriller Live is currently booking until September 15, 2013.
