Ex-Rocky Horror actors in Panto and Christmas Shows 2013/2014 season
Back back to the main Notice Board page

It's that time of year again, fan club rep Kev has once more been working away harder than Santa's elves to bring us a list of these Rocky Horror Actors in Panto and Christmas shows for the 2013/2014 season.

A message from Kev..............

"I've compiled the list of ex Rocky Horror actors in Panto and shows over the Christmas season for a few years now and it is always a pleasure catching up with old cast members and hearing their news.

Paul CritchlowThis year is tinged with sadness, as we sadly lost Paul Critchlow and Peter Thorne, two stalwarts of Rocky Horror and Pantomime. Both actors delighted audiences during 1980s in the Theatre Royal Hanley tour of Rocky Horror playing Riff Raff and The Narrator respectively.

In the world of Panto Paul made a formidable Villain and in more recent years an outrageous Ugly Sister while Peter was the perfect traditional Pantomime Dame. I was lucky enough to see them both in Panto on many occasions and they always had time to stop and chat and reminisce about their time in Rocky.

In addition in 2004 Peter very kindly gave an in depth interview to Timewarp about his time in Rocky and subsequently gave me his complete Rocky Horror archive, which I now treasure more than ever.

So this year I would like to dedicate the Panto page to these two wonderful performers whose talents and contribution to Rocky was outstanding. Although Pantoland might be a little sadder this year without them, the light over at the Frankenstein place shines brightly in their honour."
