I'm very new to this forum but I grew up seeing Rocky Horror when it was on the stage in Chelsea - too many years ago to remember.  A group of us youngsters used to go at least 2 or 3 times a month.  Can anyone give me any more info on this new production, would love to see it again - it'll take me back to my childhood.

Sounds good, but Rydian as Rocky? Really? I can't see that myself.

I read the cast posted above before reading the link as to who was playing which part, and thought Rhydian would have been playing Riff Raff, I think he would have been fab! Anyway I'll be interested to see him as Rocky, and Oliver looks great in the pic in the article. Looking forward to this :)

Does Rhydian have a muscley body? (asking that for the show's sake not mine!) If so then I guess he'll pull it off playing Rocky.

Yes he does!

He's a keep fit fanatic. Used to be the Welsh bench press champion as a teenager believe it or not.

Interesting cast.  Think Oliver will be amazing as Frank.  Haven't seen the show for years so be interesting to see it again.
