News: The Rocky Horror Show announces live cinema screening

Legendary musical The Rocky Horror Show has announced a live cinema screening across the UK and Europe, for one night only on Thursday 28 October.

Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll musical is set to arrive at big screens later this month, in a special Halloween performance broadcast live from the Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theatre in London’s West End.

The show stars Strictly Come Dancing winner Ore Oduba as Brad, in a UK tour that continues to break records in theatres across the country. The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party featuring timeless classics, including “Sweet Transvestite”, “Dammit Janet”, and the pelvic-thrusting, show-stopping “Time Warp”.

Further cast includes Stephen Webb (Jersey Boys/Legally Blonde) as Frank, 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.

Kristian Lavercombe (Jersey Boys/Jesus Christ Superstar) reprises his role as Riff Raff, with Lauren Ingram (Beauty and the Beast/My Fair Lady) as Columbia, Ben Westhead (Oliver!/The Sound of Music) as Rocky, and Joe Allen (Little Shop of Horrors/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Eddie and Dr Scott.

Phantoms include Reece Budin (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical/Man of La Mancha), Jordan Fox (Kinky Boots/Hairspray) and Rachel Grundy (Starlight Express/Peter Pan), Darcy Finden, who makes her professional debut, Danny Knott (Saturday Night Fever/A Midsummer Night’s Dream) as Male Swing and Stefania Du Toit (Starlight Express/Singing in the Rain), as Female Swing and Dance Captain.

The Rocky Horror Show is the story of two squeaky clean college kids – Brad and his fiancée Janet. When by a twist of fate, their car breaks down outside a creepy mansion whilst on their way to visit their former college professor, they meet the charismatic Dr Frank’n’Furter. It is an adventure they’ll never forget, filled with fun, frolics, frocks, and frivolity.
