The creator of The Rocky Horror Show, Richard O’Brien, is joining the production to play the Narrator for the Adelaide season only!
The 2014 Australian tour of The Rocky Horror Show is proving to be a phenomenal success with the Brisbane season selling out, and the Perth season receiving great acclaim. The production is receiving standing ovations at every performance, with audiences ecstatically dancing the Time Warp.
Richard O’Brien, who wrote the much loved rock and roll musical and played Riff Raff in film adaptation, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, has occasionally played roles in the show elsewhere but has never performed in Australia. O’Brien attended the Opening Night of this 40th Anniversary tour in Brisbane, and said this production is “very, very special. I am deeply moved.”
O’Brien will play the Narrator at the Festival Theatre, Adelaide from March 20, alongside television and theatre star Craig McLachlan in the coveted role of Frank N Furter, Christie Whelan Browne as Janet, Tim Maddren as Brad, Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff, Erika Heynatz as Magenta, Ashlea Pyke as Columbia, Nicholas Christo as Eddie and Dr Scott, and Brendan Irving as Rocky. Completing the cast are Vincent Hooper, Luigi Lucente, James Maxfield, Meghan O’Shea and Angela Scundi.
