Oliver Thornton, Rhydian, Roxanne Pallett and Ben Forster will star in the forthcoming 40th anniversary tour of Richard O'Brien's cult musical The Rocky Horror Show which arrives in Liverpool next month.
Oliver Thornton as Frank 'n' Furter
The Rocky Horror Show tells the story of two squeaky clean college kids Brad and his fiancée Janet, who meet Dr Frank’n’Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house whilst on their way to visit a college professor.
The musical, which first appeared at the Royal Court in 1973, and was voted "favourite Royal Court Play" in the venue's 50th anniversary year, will play the Liverpool Empire (11-16 February) and the Manchester Opera House (25-30 March 2013).
The Rocky Horror Show features musical classics including "Science Fiction/Double Feature", "Dammit Janet and", of course, "The Time-Warp".
Rhydian shot to fame on X Factor in 2007 before starring in We Will Rock You and Grease; Roxanne Pallett has appeared in Emmerdale and Waterloo Road and took part in Dancing On Ice in 2009; and Ben Forster won the ITV1 series Superstar and then went on to play the lead in Jesus Christ Superstar.
