Thriller Live Producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol of Flying Music and Executive Director Adrian Grant of Key Concerts said ...


"We are proud to announce that Thriller Live, which is now in its 10th year in the West End, is partnering with The Prince's Trust for this one-off charity gala performance and that we will be supporting this wonderful charity over the next year with its mandate to help disadvantaged young people get their lives on track with opportunites to see the show, Q & A sessions, art programmes, workshops and mentoring experiences with our creative team, dancers and singers."


Ian Jeffers, Deputy Chief Executive at The Prince's Trust said ...


"We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Thriller Live for inviting us to share the spotlight with them at this milestone moment.


The funds raised through the 4000th Thriller Live performance, along with the Thriller Live team's commitment to provide experiences and mentoring over the next year, will help us to support even more young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to realise their ambitions."


About the record-breaking show


Thriller Live, created by Michael Jackson author and associate Adrian Grant and directed by award-winning choreographer Gary Lloyd, is unlike any other West End musical.


Without script or story, it is instead an eye-popping celebration of Michael Jackson's music and dance legacy, bringing to life on stage his distinctive high-energy dancing and the pulsating sound of many of pop's greatest hits.


Thriller Live first 'Moonwalked' into the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in January 2009, and holds the record as the longest ever run of a show since the theatre opened in December 1888, and the record as the 6th longest running musical currently playing in the West End.


It has been seen by over 4.5 million people in 33 countries and played over 6,000 performances worldwide, never failing to get a standing ovation!


About The Prince's Trust


Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, youth charity The Prince's Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track.


It supports 11 to 30-year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.


Many of the young people helped by The Prince's Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.


The Trust's programs give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work.


Three in four young people supported by The Prince's Trust move into work, education or training.


The Prince of Wales's charity has helped 900,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day.
