Actor, presenter and winner of Strictly Come Dancing Ore Oduba will star as Brad Majors in Richard O’Brien’s ‘Rocky Horror Show’.

Back by huge popular demand, the legendary musical will tour the UK between July 2021 and June 2022. Tickets are on sale now from RockyHorror.co.uk

Ore Oduba said: “I can’t wait to join the cast of the ‘Rocky Horror Show’. Like everybody, I’ve missed the stage so much and Rocky really is the perfect show to welcome audiences back to theatres. It’s such an iconic musical with songs that everyone knows, so I’m sure the Rocky fans will be desperate to do the Time Warp again! I’m so excited to get started and tour the country with our production… just got to remember to pack my stockings!!”

Joining Ore and returning to the cast of the Rocky Horror Show as Frank is Stephen Webb (‘Jersey Boys’ / ‘Legally Blonde’), alongside Philip Franks (‘The Darling Buds of May’) as The Narrator. They will be joined by fan favourite Haley Flaherty (‘Mamma Mia’ / ‘Chicago’) as Janet.

‘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, with fun, frolics, frocks and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits.  The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which famously combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music while encouraging audience participation – meaning, of course, getting dressed-up in the most outrageous fancy dress.
