IT’S A THRILLER ! As a Halloween treat, 41 pupils from Holmleigh Primary School, Stamford Hill, Hackney, got to play flesh-eating zombies for real – on stage in the West End.

In an event organised through Variety The Children’s Charity, they had their faces painted as ghouls and the undead, they were taught how to dance to Michael Jackson’s hit Thriller by the cast of THRILLER LIVE, including David Jordan as Michael Jackson, then performed it on stage at the Lyric Theatre.

Thank you to the theatre company, who approached Variety offering to arrange this wonderful experience for the children on our VAW scheme.

Holmleigh Primary School are registered with the “Variety At Work” scheme that matches offers such as this one with suitable schools and organisations around the UK.
