Cult musical, The Rocky Horror Show, is set for another extensive national tour in 2016.
Caught in a Time Warp, this much-loved show, is a firm favourite with audiences who enjoy heckling their guest narrators and joining in the fun.
The leading role of transsexual doctor Frank’n’Furter has yet to be cast but his support has been named as X Factor finalist, Diana Vickers, Paul Cattermole from S Club 7, and Emmerdale’s Ben Freeman.
Richard O’Brien’s legendary musical has been performed worldwide for over 40 years in over 30 countries and has been translated into more than 20 languages.

Paul Cattermole will cameo in the role of Eddie. Following his huge success in over 900 performances of the 40th Anniversary Global Tour of The Rocky Horror Show, Kristian Lavercombe returns as Riff Raff. Further casting to be announced soon.
This musical extravaganza features all of its famous musical classics including Science Fiction/Double Feature, Dammit Janet and of course, the timeless floor-filler, The Time-Warp.
The Rocky Horror Show was first performed on 19 June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre and continues to break box office records around the world.
It tells the story of Brad and his fiancée Janet, two squeaky clean college kids who meet Dr Frank’n’Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house.
