Ore Oduba to star in ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ at Peacock Theatre
The cult classic comes to the Peacock Theatre for a Halloween celebration.
The Rocky Horror Show follows Brad and Janet, a young couple who have to take shelter in a nearby castle. There, they meet Dr. Frank N. Furter who reveals the latest creation they’ve been working on. The sci-fi musical features a book, music and lyrics by Richard O’ Brien, with songs include “Dammit, Janet,” “Sweet Transvestite” and “The Time Warp.”
The touring production of The Rocky Horror Show currently stars Strictly Come Dancing champion Ore Oduba as Brad. Further casting for The Rocky Horror Show in London is to be confirmed. On tour, the cast includes Haley Flaherty as Janet, Stephen Webb as Frank N Furter, Joe Allen as Eddie and Dr. Scott, Callum Evans as Rocky, Lauren Ingram as Columbia, Kristian Laverscombe as Riff Raff and Suzie McAdam as Magenta.
The Rocky Horror Show was last in London at the Playhouse Theatre in 2015. In a review of the 2015 production, Tom Millward said: “one cannot deny the fact that there is just nothing else in the world of musical theatre quite like The Rocky Horror Show and nor will there ever be again.”
The Rocky Horror Show is at the Peacock Theatre from 20 - 30 October.
