The Rocky Horror Show continues to play to packed houses as it tours the length and breadth of the UK throughout 2019 featuring a wealth of star performers. More than 100,000 people have seen the show during the tour and there are no signs of this incredible cast slowing down as it heads to Bristol Hippodrome this June.
Strictly star Joanne Clifton, who has been delighting audiences and receiving rave reviews as Janet, will continue to don her corset and fishnets as she extends her role in the musical extravaganza for a further six months until the end of the 2019 tour.
Joanne said: “I absolutely love playing Janet, so I’m delighted to continue with the show throughout the year”.
Blue star Duncan James has excited theatre fans playing the character of Frank n Furter, slipping into a corset and heels with ease.
Duncan said: “I’m just loving every minute. Frank is such an iconic role; it’s an honour to play him.”
Dom Joly will star as The Narrator during the show’s run at The Bristol Hippodrome in June 2019.
From 27 May, James Darch will join the cast to play Brad. James, an accomplished actor with an impressive CV, is currently starring as Pat Casey in Maggie May at The Finborough Theatre. Other credits include An Officer and a Gentleman (UK tour), Wicked (Apollo Victoria), and Mamma Mia (Novello Theatre).
James said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of The Rocky Horror Show. It’s mad – there is no denying that. But, as the devoted audiences prove, it’s a story that’s got heart and relevance through every generation. Its infectious energy is still standing the test of time and coming out on top. I can’t wait to put my own small stamp on such a well known and loved character as Brad – bring on the madness!”
The legendary musical extravaganza also stars West End star Stephen Webb as Frank and Kristian Lavercombe, who reprises his role as Riff Raff following more than 1500 performances around the world. Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the smash hit show features all of the famous musical numbers which have made The Rocky Horror Show such a huge hit for over four decades, including “Sweet Transvestite”, “Science Fiction/Double Feature”, “Dammit Janet” and, of course, the timeless floor-filler, “The Time-Warp”.
The Rocky Horror Show runs from June 17-22 at The Bristol Hippodrome
