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 in The Rocky Horror Show 40th Anniversary Production, which comes to the The Mayflower in May.

He will appear alongside 2012 Strictly Come Dancing finalist and Tracy Beaker star, Dani Harmer, who will play the role of Janet. Sam and Dani will be joined by West End actor Oliver Thornton, who stars as the lead character of Frank ’n’ Furter.

Since its first appearance at the Royal Court Theatre in June 1973, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has been performed worldwide in more than 30 countries in every continent and has been translated into more than 20 languages.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary, Christopher Luscombe has created a new production, featuring all the musical classics including The Time Warp and Dammit Janet, for a year-long UK tour.

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, while on their way to visit their former college professor.

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

nn The Rocky Horror Show is at The Mayflower from May 13 to 18.

Tickets are on sale now.
