Prinnie Stevens will get to live out a childhood dream when she pays tribute to Michael Jackson and his signature dance moves on stage.
Thriller Live has just entered the record books as the 20th longest running musical in West End...and it's coming to Australia.
The Hist show is over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco in a show that pays homage to Michael Jackson’s legendary live performances and the magic of his 45-year musical history. The show features stunning choreography and Michael’s innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion in a show that fans will never forget.
Prinnie Stevens, who made it to the live shows on the first series of The Voice Australia in 2012, will headline the Australian run of hit musical, which has become one of the longest-running shows on London's West End and played in more than 28 countries.
While Stevens is best known for her star turn on the reality quest, she is no stranger to the theatre, having appeared on stage from the age of 17 and earning a Helpmann Award nomination for her performance in Oh, What a Night!.
The 34-year-old told AAA she could not wait to step into the shoes of her idol in the musical.
I am a singer/dancer and Michael Jackson was the ultimate singer/dancer. He influenced me so much as a child; his videos took me to another place."
Before the Australian tour kicks off at Crown Theatre from December 10-21, the cast will perform the show on the West End for a two-week run.
Stevens said the thought of making her debut in the renowned theatre district was "insane".
Also thrilled for Stevens is her eight-year-old daughter Sania, who is becoming quite the Jackson fan in her own right. "She is beyond excited, more so about Michael Jackson than me though," the proud mother said with a laugh.
