The show is seeking auditioned for dancers and is looking for applicants to record an audition to a back track and upload it to its Facebook page, where fans will vote for their favourite.

The most popular 15 applicants will then audition live in front of the show’s creative team.

Director & Choreographer, Gary Lloyd, said: “We are always getting requests 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.”

Dancers will be considered for both the West End production and the ongoing worldwide tour next year.
