The Rocky Horror Show is returning for a UK tour, opening at Theatre Royal Brighton in December 2015.

Tickets for the tour go on sale "exclusively to fans of the show" on 20 March, and casting for the production is to be announced.

Richard O'Brien's cult classic musical tells the story of squeaky-clean college kids Brad and Janet, who stumble upon Dr Frank'n'Furter's house when their car breaks down.

It features songs including "Time Warp" and "Dammit Janet", and last toured the UK in 2013, with a cast including Ben Forster and Oliver Thornton.

The Rocky Horror Show runs at:
Theatre Royal Brighton (17 December 2015 to 2 January 2016)
Manchester Opera House (5-16 January)
New Alexandra Theatre Birmingham (25-30 January)
Liverpool Empire (1-6 February)
Sunderland Empire (15-20 February)
New Wimbledon Theatre (29 February-5 March)
Princess Theatre Torquay (7-12 March)

There are more dates to be announced shortly.

The news comes shortly after the announcement of the Rocky Horror sequel Shock Treatment at the King's Head Theatre, which opens in April.
