The Rocky Horror Show returns to Leeds Grand Theatre

Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock musical returns to Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 19th August, with Blue and Hollyoaks star Duncan James as Dr Frank-n-Furter.

Since first opening in London in June 1973, The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite rock ‘n’ roll musical – having been performed in more than 30 countries and translated into over 20 languages.

Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the musical extravaganza features Strictly Come Dancing champion Joanne Clifton as Janet, James Darch as Brad, and writer, comedian and actor Steve Punt as The Narrator.

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 favourite college professor. It’s an adventure they’ll never forget.

“Frank is such an iconic role,” says Duncan James. “It’s an honour to be able to play him and a role that I have always wanted to do. I’m so excited to be touring with such a fun and vibrant show, and to be working with this fantastic cast.”

Musical numbers include Sweet Transvestite, Science Fiction/Double Feature, Dammit Janet and, of course, the timeless floor-filler, The Time Warp.

The Rocky Horror Show is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 19th to Saturday 24th August 2019. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or call Box Office on 0844 848 2700.
