The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy to tour UK

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is to travel the UK for 32 performances next year, complete with the original cast of the radio show.

Sci-fi fans staying in Glasgow hotels will be the first to catch the show on June 8th and 9th 2012, with the production returning to Scotland for its final performance in Edinburgh on July 21st.

In between, it will take in major venues in Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and York, among a number of others.

Based on the work by Douglas Adams, the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy tour features Simon Jones in the role of Arthur Dent, Geoff McGivern as Ford Prefect, Susan Sheridan as Trillian, and Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox.

Stephen Moore voices Marvin the Paranoid Android.

Production company Perfectly Normal Productions said: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show - Live! is an adventure which will introduce newcomers of all ages to Vogons, Babel Fish, Marvin the Paranoid Android, and allow them to explore the unique and hilarious Whole General Mish Mash According to Douglas Adams."

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy has also been turned into a hit film, starring Martin Freeman in the role of Dent.
