Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1973. Since then it has been performed in more than 30 countries and over 20 languages.

A new production by Christopher Luscombe is coming to Milton Keynes Theatre to mark the shows 40th anniversary.

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 former college professor.

It is an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits.

The show features the classic musical hits, Science Fiction/Double Feature, Dammit Janet and The Time-Warp.

West End star Oliver Thornton, who has appeared in Phantom Of the Opera, Les Miserables, Chicago and Starlight Express, will follow in the footsteps of Tim Curry when he stars as the lead character of Frank ‘n’ Furter.

Stage and TV actor Sam Attwater, who has appeared in Eastenders and Hollyoaks and starred in West End shows including Dreamboats and Petticoats, will play the role of Brad alongside 2012 Strictly Come Dancing finalist and Tracy Beaker star, Dani Harmer, who will play the role of Janet.

They will be joined by Philip Franks, from The Darling Buds of May and Heartbeat, who plays the narrator.

See The Rocky Horror Show at Milton Keynes Theatre from Monday, July 15 to Saturday, July 20.

Performances are at 8pm from Monday to Thursday. On the Friday and Saturday they are at 5.30pm and 8.30pm.
