Ore Oduba is a fantastic actor and presenter well-known for his turn in Strictly Come Dancing. He’s set to star as Brad Majors in Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show, coming to the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, this November.
Joining Ore is Stephen Webb as Frank alongside Philip Franks as The Narrator and Haley Flaherty as Janet. If you’re wondering who’s playing Riff Raff… you guessed it, it’ll be Kristian Lavercombe who’s played the role in over 1,800 performances around the world.
Ore Oduba 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 madcap show has been performed across the world for over 45 years, popular thanks to it’s audience participation moments and fantastic score including songs like Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet and of course The Time Warp. When Brad and his squeaky clean fiancée Janet find themselves broken down with no one to help, they stumble upon Dr Frank’n’Furter’s mansion… and madness ensues during this adventure they’ll never forget. A mixture of science-fiction, horror, comedy and music… what’s not to love?
The Rocky Horror Show will comes to The Alhambra Theatre from Monday 15th – Saturday 20th November.
