As The Rocky Horror Show enters the autumn and winter legs of its current UK tour, producers have announced some casting changes.
The role of the narrator will be played by a number of star performers including actor Philip Franks, Punt and Denis star Steve Punt and Coronation Street favourite Charlie Condou.
On returning to the show to play The Narrator, Charlie Condou said: “I’m so excited to be returning to the cast of the Rocky Horror Show to play The Narrator – I had such a fantastic time playing the role earlier this year so I was thrilled to be invited back. It’s such an iconic show, I’m looking forward to rejoining the wonderful cast and to seeing the brilliant audiences – who I am sure will again be keeping me on my toes”
Paul Catermole (S Club 7) and Liam Tamme (The Voice) will continue as Eddie/Dr Scott and Dr Frank N Furter, with Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff and Richard Meek as Brad.
Now for the fun bit, concentrate now so you don’t get mixed up. Georgia May Foote (Coronation Street, Coronation Street) will play Columbia for three weeks at the New Theatre Oxford. Helen Flaherty and Sophie Linder-Lee will play Janet at certain venues, with Linder-Lee also playing Columbia at certain venues. Each venue link will show which cast is performing at specific venues.
The current tour of The Rocky Horror Show has now grossed over £5million and has been seen by over 230,000 people.
