Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show returns to Manchester this October, running at the Opera House from 24 to 29 October.

Rocky Horror Show was first performed on 19 June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre and has become the world’s favourite Rock N’ Roll musical, having been performed worldwide for over 40 years in over 30 countries and translated into more than 20 languages.

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 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.

The iconic role of The Narrator will be played by former Coronation Street favourite Charlie Condou, who reprises his hit role from earlier this year. Also reprising their roles from January’s hit run at the Opera House are Paul Cattermole (S Club Seven) as Eddie/Dr Scott and Liam Tamne (The Voice, Phantom of the Opera) as Frank N Furter.

On returning to the show to play The Narrator, Charlie Condou said: “I’m so excited to be returning to the cast of the Rocky Horror Show to play The Narrator – I had such a fantastic time playing the role earlier this year so I was thrilled to be invited back. It’s such an iconic show, I’m looking forward to rejoining the wonderful cast and to seeing the brilliant audiences – who I am sure will again be keeping me on my toes”.

The title role of Rocky is played by Dominic Andersen. Janet will be played by theatre star Haley Flaherty. Completing the lead cast are Rocky favourites Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff and Richard Meek, who plays Brad.

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. 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 takes place at Manchester’s Opera House from 24 to 29 October.
