While this may come as disappointing news to those who have bought tickets just before or after this time period, Producers Howard Panter and John Frost have announced that author of The Rocky Hocky Horror Show, Richard O’Brien, will be joining the Australian production cast at certain performances during the Melbourne season. Taking over the role of narrator from Bert Newton, O’brien can be seen at performances on June 30 and July 1, 2, 5 (5:30PM Only), 7, 8 and 9. Bert Newton will continue to perform the role of The Narrator at all other scheduled performances.
O’Brien will take to the stage to timewarp as only he can, in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Melbourne audiences. O’Brien has only rarely appeared on stage in The Rocky Horror Show after writing the much loved rock and roll musical many decades ago.

We are thrilled that Richard O’Brien is joining us for a few performances in Melbourne to play the Narrator. To have the creator of this iconic musical as part of the production for a short time is a dream come true, and I’m sure Rocky Horror fans will flock to Melbourne to see this unique opportunity. Make sure you buy a ticket before it’s sold out, and before madness takes its toll.
