THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW returns to the Milton Keynes Theatre from 25th – 30th July.
Since its first appearance at the Royal Court Theatre in June 1973, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite Rock N’ Roll musical. It has been performed worldwide for nearly 40 years in over 30 countries in every continent and has been translated into more than 20 languages. Celebrating his 10th anniversary as director of The Rocky Horror Show is Christopher Luscombe and it is his production which is at Milton Keynes Theatre this week,25 – 30 Jul.
Liam Tamne, who has appeared in The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Wicked and Hairspray in the West End in addition to series 3 of The Voice on BBC television, will follow in the footsteps of Tim Curry when he stars as the lead character of Frank ‘n’ Furter Stage and TV Award winning actor Richard Meek, who has appeared in Hot Mikado (for which he won Time Out Critics’ Choice), and appeared in The Rocky Horror Show in Singapore and New Zealand and most recently in the West End Production of the shoe that was screened live in cinemas across Europe. Playing opposite Richard as Janet is Diana Vickers who scored such a hit as Little Voice in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. Norman Pace of the comedy due Hale & Pace will have a free hand to verbally handle the usual rowdy Rocky Horror audiences as he plays the Narrator.
This musical extravaganza will feature 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 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, whilst on their way to visit their former college professor. It is an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks, and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which famously combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music and encourages audience participation meaning, of course, getting dressed in your most outrageous fancy dress.
The Rocky Horror Show was first performed on 19 June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre. It was an immediate success, transferring to three London theatres. It was transformed into a film in 1974 called The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This film adaptation took over $135 million at the Box Office and is still shown in cinemas around the world 42 years after its premiere, making it the longest running theatrical release in film history.
Many stars, including Russell Crowe, Tim Curry, Jerry Springer, Rhydian and Meatloaf have appeared in The Rocky Horror Show over the past 40 years.
Ready to thrill you with fun and naughty moments, O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show is the boldest bash of them all. Be warned, this show has rude parts! So pull on those stockings and book today!
