DRAG out and dust off the old fishnet stockings!

At the same time stand by for some unusual and unmissable sights in the middle of Malvern as fans of The Rocky Horror Show head for the town’s Festival Theatre in the full regalia of their favourite characters in the show.

The show - which first saw life back in 1973 - continues to play to packed houses as it tours the length and breadth of the UK throughout the year and features a wealth of star performers.

Once again Midland fans are expected to pay homage to bizarre characters such as Riff Raff, Frank’n’Furter, and the Narrator - who usually is quite happy to camp it up.

More than 100,000 people have seen this bold and brash show during the current tour and there are no signs of this incredible cast slowing down.

Strictly star Joanne Clifton, who has been delighting audiences and receiving rave reviews as Janet, will continue to don her corset and fishnets as she extends her role in the musical extravaganza for a further six months until the end of the 2019 tour.

Joanne said: “I absolutely love playing Janet, so I’m delighted to continue with the show throughout the year”.

The legendary musical extravaganza also stars James Darch (An Officer and a Gentleman, Wicked, Mamma Mia) as Brad, and there’s also West End star Stephen Webb as Frank and Kristian Lavercombe, who reprises his role as Riff Raff following more than 1,500 performances 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.

The Rocky Horror 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.

It’s 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.

It will certainly be naughty but also great fun when the show runs at Malvern from Monday, July 22 to Saturday, July 7.
