Cameron Daddo Is Joining The Party Show Of The Year!

Posted by Adelaide Festival Centre on Monday 13 November 2017

Producers Howard Panter, John Frost and GWB Entertainment today announced that stage and screen leading man Cameron Daddo will join the cast of the world’s favourite rock and roll musical. Cameron will play the role of the Narrator in the Adelaide and Brisbane seasons of the show. His most recent stage credits include Captain Von Trapp in the London Palladium production of The Sound of Music across Australia and The Haunting at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre, and previously in the musical Legally Blonde.

The producers also announced that the 2018 Australian tour Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show will also play in Melbourne at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 13 July next year for a strictly limited season. The Rocky Horror Show will re-open the refurbished Festival Theatre at the Adelaide Festival Centre from 28 December 2017, then play at QPAC, Brisbane from 18 January, and the Crown Theatre, Perth from 17 February.

Leading the cast will be television and theatre star Craig McLachlan, donning Frank N Furter’s legendary fishnet stockings in his Helpmann Award-winning role. Joining Craig will be Kristian Lavercombe who astounded audiences in the 2014/5 tour as Riff Raff, musical theatre favourites Amanda Harrison as Magenta, Nadia Komazec as Columbia and Brendan Irving as Rocky, alongside Adam Rennie as Eddie and Dr Scott. Playing the roles of Brad and Janet, the naïve young couple caught up in a situation they don’t understand, are Rob Mallett and Michelle Smitheram. The ensemble cast includes Bianca Baykara, Ross Chisari, Hollie James, Hayley Martin, Stephen McDowell and Geoffrey Winter.

“We are thrilled that Cameron will join this exciting new cast for The Rocky Horror Show – audiences are sure to love Cameron as the acerbic Narrator. With Craig leading this wonderfully talented group of performers, this is sure to be an even wilder and sexier night out than ever before,” said the producers. “To say we are thrilled to dance the Time Warp across Australia again is an understatement. Theatregoers should give themselves over to absolute pleasure before madness takes its toll!”


The Rocky Horror Show is a true classic and one of theatre’s most endearing and outrageously fun shows. It opened at London’s Royal Court Theatre on June 19, 1973, quickly developing a cult following, and was adapted into the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has the longest- running release in film history. This iconic brand holds a unique place in theatre history, a show which has defied the decades and continued to grow in popularity.

The Rocky Horror Show is currently playing in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Argentina, Romania and Slovenia, and about to open in Belgium, Tokyo and other cities in Japan. It has recently closed in Korea and Brazil, and in 2018 will open in Israel, Canada, Iceland and the UK. Millions of people all over the world have and continue to see productions of The Rocky Horror Show and sing along to classics like Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet, I Can Make You A Man, Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me, Over At The Frankenstein Place and of course, The Time Warp.

So give yourself over to absolute pleasure, and let’s do the Time Warp again.
