In a Sydney production of the well-known musical The Rocky Horror Show, Jason Donovan will make his way back to Australia in February to take on the role of Dr. Frank N Furter.
The 54-year-old London-based actor visited Australia earlier this year to record a cameo for the Neighbours season finale, and he is now wanting to extend his stay.
The father-of-three met his wife Angela Malloch while performing as Frank N Furter in a late-’90s production of the musical in London.
The Especially For You singer expressed his excitement at the prospect of visiting his own Australia for such a legendary stage performance.
“Royal Horror and I have a history.” It’s somewhat ingrained in my DNA because I participated in the 25th anniversary tour of it in the UK in 1998, he said, according to The Daily Telegraph.
And to revisit this title, it just feels natural to be in Australia after spending years doing several shows, especially here in the UK.
It follows Jason’s July performance as Scott Robinson in what was supposed to be the final episode before the show was revived by Amazon. Jason played Scott Robinson on Neighbours from 1986 to 1989.
As the lengthy serial came to an end, he made an appearance alongside Kylie Minogue, who played his character’s wife Charlene.
On social media, Jason previously posted some images of himself and Kylie while they were filming, along with the caption, “So good to be back with this absolute legend @kylieminogue.” ‘@neighbors’ concluding scenes starring Scott and Charlene.
The 54-year-old singer Kylie also uploaded many photos of herself and Jason dressed as the characters, writing, “Yep, there were tears! Congratulations to the @neighbours crew for the joyful and uplifting conclusion. You’ll always have a place in my heart.
Jason left Neighbours in 1989 to concentrate on his stage career, and he later appeared as a leading man in well-known productions including Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat.
He and Angela have three children together and have been married since 2008.
