Michael Jackson Musical Holds Dance Auditions On Facebook
Thriller Live production turns to social media to find its next superstars.
- 28 november 2011
Thriller Live is a UK production that celebrates the life and career of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. Now, the show is seeking dancers by holding a global audition on Facebook.
To audition, participants simply upload their video on the Thriller Live Facebok page, demonstrating ‘techniques, tricks, versatility and style’ in their dance routine. Visitors can then browse the audition tapes and vote for their favorite.
The most popular 15 applications as selected by public votes will then audition live in front of the show’s creative team. Dancers will be considered for the UK production but also for the ongoing worldwide tour next year.
Award-winning Director & Choreographer, Gary Lloyd, commented that:
We are always getting request from around the world to be part of this amazing show and play a part in keeping Michael Jackson’s legend alive. By harnessing the power of Facebook we will create a truly open and global audition process to find superstar dancers for this show.
