Craig McLachlan will once again put on the fishnets when he returns as Frank N Further for the 40th anniversary Rocky Horror Show Australian tour.

Producers John Frost and Howard Panter announced the new tour will begin in Brisbane in January and tour the country ending April in Melbourne.

“We are thrilled to have found the perfect cast for the 40th Anniversary Australian tour of this much loved iconic musical,” said John Frost and Howard Panter. “There is no one who can play the character of Frank N Furter like Craig McLachlan. He oozes that risqué charm that an actor playing Frank needs, as well as bucket loads of sex appeal. And after an extensive audition process we have secured a group of exciting musical theatre talents to complete the cast. We know audiences are going to love doing the Time Warp with this wonderful cast again.”

Brad will be played by Tim Maddren and Christie Whelan Brown will star as Janet.

The show will also feature Ashlea Pyke, Nicholas Christo, Brendan Irving, Luigi Lucente, Meghan O’Shea, Angela Scundi and James Maxfield.

The Rocky Horror Show dates are:

From January 8, Brisbane, QPAC
From February 14, Perth, Crown Theatre
From March 20, Adelaide, Festival Theatre
From April 24, Melbourne, Comedy Theatre
