Strictly champion Ore Oduba joins cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show, which is heading to the Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham
Strictly champion and television presenter Ore Oduba is to star in an up-coming production of the classic Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The cult musical comes to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall from August 10 to 15.
Oduba will star as Brad Majors.
He 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!”
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.
It’s an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, and outrageous outfits.
The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music while encouraging audience participation — including getting dressed-up in the most outrageous fancy dress.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the smash-hit show features all of the famous musical numbers that have made The Rocky Horror Show such a huge hit for over four decades, including Sweet Transvestite, Science Fiction/Double Feature, Dammit Janet and, of course, the dancefloor favourite, The Time-Warp.
Joining Ore and returning to the cast of the Rocky Horror Show as Frank is Stephen Webb, alongside Philip Franks from The Darling Buds of May as The Narrator. They will be joined by fan favourite Haley Flaherty as Janet.
Kristian Lavercombe will once again reprise his role as Riff Raff, following more than 1,350 performances around the world.
