Peter Andre to guest star in Thriller Live

In perfect time to be a welcome early Christmas gift for Peter Andre fans, it’s been announced that the Australian star will join the cast of Thriller Live for just two weeks between 10th and 22nd December.

Andre is a huge international star, who has been consistently popular since his breakthrough in the 90s with the likes of “Mysterious Girl”. He boasts two Number 1 albums, a host of Number 1 singles and plenty of awards gained during his career, and now has over 6 million followers on social media.

Thriller Live, the musical tribute to Michael Jackson, is running at the Lyric Theatre until 26 April 2020, and after over a decade is still one of the most popular shows in the West End. Various popular names have joined the cast over the years, including Alexandra Burke and Layton Williams, but Peter Andre is perhaps the most widely recognised star to join the ranks of this popular production. He received a standing ovation when he performed during the 4,000th performance of the show last year, and so is sure to be a hit during his limited engagement in December.

Andre will be the first in a series of guest stars appearing over the next few months, before the show moves to a new West End venue. Producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol have assured audiences that Andre’s two weeks in the show will be  “an unforgettable experience for fans lucky enough to get a ticket.”

Is The Gruffalo at the Lyric Theatre good for kids? Here’s what parents have said

Something big, furry and monstrous has taken up residence in London’s Lyric Theatre. Tall Stories’ production of The Gruffalo, based on the best-selling children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, has turned the Lyric stage into a mysterious forest, and invited kids and grown-ups in to meet its wild inhabitants.

This is not the first time that the Lyric has hosted this production. Of course, the most important question with a show like The Gruffalo is “will kids enjoy this?”

Does ‘The Gruffulo’ at the Lyric Theatre delight kids and parents alike?

To answer this question, we have taken a look at what popular parent bloggers have had to say about The Gruffalo in previous runs at The Lyric.

Monica Costa, founder of London Mum’s Magazine, reviewed the 2015 run of The Grufallo and called it:

“an enchanting production with the perfect combination of songs, laughter, physical theatre and just the right amount of scary fun”

Mummy, primary school teacher and blogger Emma Edwards, whose adventures with her son, Adam, form the basis for adventuresandplay.com, saw the The Gruffalo at the Lyric in 2016 and had the following to say:

“The show entertained both Adam and us. There were several pantomime gags and some humour that went over the children’s heads. It was certainly a show to remember and one that we would highly recommend.”

Parenting, travel and style blogger Scandi Mummy also reviewed the 2016 Lyric run and said:

“I highly recommend taking your children to see this show especially if they are already fans of The Gruffalo. The script and ad-libbing by the actors make it highly entertaining for adults as well.”

Mum of twin boys, Kelly, writing for mojomums.co.uk, wrote of the 2017 run at The Lyric:

“My sons were both captivated – sometimes one son in particular can become a little fidgety and bored, but not with this show, he loved it!  The show ran for around an hour, perfect time for little one’s and no toilet stops needed!”

It’s clear that kids love The Gruffalo!

The Gruffalo will be rumbling around the Lyric Theatre until 8th September. See full details and book your tickets here.
