Comedian Steve Punt will star as The Narrator in the UK tour of The Rocky Horror Show, coming to the Regent Theatre, Monday 3 – Saturday 8 June.
Since it first opened in London in June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite Rock ‘N’ Roll musical, having been performed worldwide for 45 years in more than 30 countries and translated into over 20 languages. 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 in the most outrageous fancy dress.
Returning as The Narrator, Steve Punt, of Punt and Dennis said: “I first saw Rocky when I was 15, so it’s a show that I’ve known for a long time and always loved. It was just a lovely thing to be asked to do it. The director said to me, ‘don’t worry if you don’t remember every line because the audience know them and will shout them out anyway’ – some of the shout-outs are really funny and it’s great to join in the fun!”
This classic musical extravaganza will star Blue singer and Hollyoaks actor Duncan James as Frank. Kristian Lavercombe will also be reprising his role as Riff Raff, following more than 1,300 performances in The Rocky Horror Show around the world. Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the smash hit show features all of the famous musical numbers which 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 timeless floor-filler, “The Time-Warp”.
Ready to thrill you with fun and naughty moments, The Rocky Horror Show is the boldest bash of them all. But be warned, this show has rude parts!
