Billy Boyd is set to join the cast of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show – Live when it opens at the Theatre Royal Glasgow.

The Lord of the Rings star will play the role of the Voice of the Book for both performances on June 8 and 9.

Director of the show, Dirk Maggs, said of Bily’s involvement: "Part of the fun of the Hitchhiker's Tour is the chance to involve guest stars to play The Voice Of The Book.

“It's even more fun that we can bring in talent of the calibre of Billy Boyd – not only a native Glaswegian but with a strong connection to Douglas Adams - Billy played Richard Macduff in the radio adaptations of Douglas's Dirk Gently novels."

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy became an instant and enduring classic on its launch as a radio series.

Members of the legendary Radio and TV casts have been reunited for these live performances, led by Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, bringing to life the characters written for them in highlights from the entire Hitchhiker's Saga.

They are joined on stage by a series of VIP Guest Voices of the Book and supporting actors from “hitchhikers” in all its phases. Each event is being recorded and will be available to download afterwards.
