After triumphant seasons in 2023, and due to phenomenal demand, the 50th Anniversary world tour continues its global celebrations in honour of the iconic Rock ‘N’ Roll musical in 2024.

Expanding on his many talents and achievements with a move into acting, Dylan is ready to tell the tale of Frank N Furter and his mischievous friends on that fateful night.
“Super pumped to join this incredible production of the iconic The Rocky Horror Show. Couldn’t think of a better opportunity for my first theatre production, feeling very grateful. Can’t wait to get to work and rock it out on stage in Sydney!” said Dylan.
