The Adelaide Festival Centre presents: Thriller Live, starring Alex Birchanan, Sean Christpoher, Samantha Johnson, J Rome, Wayne Robinson, Simone Henry, Tyrone Lee and Prinnie Stevens on lead vocals. The show is running until January 11th at The Adelaide Festival Theatre.

The King of pop lives on. This show features all your favourite songs from Michael and the Jackson 5. It has been seen by 3 million people having toured to over 28 countries and is directed and choreographed by Garry Lloyd.

It features remarkable representations of both the music of MJ and the Jackson Five, but more importantly they have MJ's moves perfect. A highlight for me was the incredible moves by
singer/dancer Sean Christopher to Billy Jean. This performance was amazing to watch and the moon walk had the audience screaming in excitement.

The cast's performance to Thriller in a graveyard by zombies crawling onto the stage from the audience was great to watch and the street gang competition to Beat Itreally held the audiences attention.

The cast of Thriller Live really wanted to show the audience how much Michael wanted to make a difference through his music. One audience member said she was brought to tears at how beautiful the message of peace was represented in 'They Don't Care About Us.'

A standout on stage was dedication from the background dancers, they were completely committed down to their incredible facials and pointed legs. Well done to Leah Hill who danced in extremely high heels during the whole performance. Samantha Johnson's solo to I'll be There was breathtaking. The show had the audience out of their seats grooving along to the music.

Featuring all Michael Jackson's hits including 'Wanna Be Starting Something', Beat It', 'P.Y.T', The Way You Make Me Feel', 'Smooth Criminal', 'Man In The Mirror' and more.
This is a show not to be missed. It's a chance to see the King's music brought to life with incredible vocals and amazing jaw-dropping dance moves that leave you wanting more.
