Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the iconic film, actor Barry Bostwick is heading to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts on Friday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. to present The 40th Anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show Film Screening Party. Fans will have the opportunity to view the film, enter a costume contest judged by Barry, then hear behind-the-scenes stories straight from “Brad” himself as Barry Bostwick takes to the stage and engages in a talkback and audience Q&A.

For the past four decades, fans have been giving themselves over to absolute pleasure, dressing up as their favorite Rocky Horror character, shouting out lines and singing along. Audience members are encouraged to come in costume as their character of choice and be a part of the audience as they dance the Time Warp and sing their loudest “Hot Patootie” during the film. One person will go home with the glory as the winner of the costume contest, selected by Barry Bostwick himself.

From his portrayal of the quintessential all-American “Brad Majors” in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” to the hilarious Mayor Randall Winston on ABC’s “Spin City,” Barry Bostwick has had quite a career spanning all genres and mediums of show business. He portrayed George Washington in the two-part Peabody award-winning CBS miniseries epic “George Washington” and won a Golden Globe for his performance as Lieutenant “Lady” Aster in ABC’s presentation of “War and Remembrance.” Barry has recently recurred on several hit television series including “Scandal,” “Glee,” “The New Normal,” Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and the 2-hour musical episode of “Psych.”

Tickets to The 40th Anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show Film Screening Party are $29. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $85 and include a post-show meet and greet with Barry. Discounts are available to members of The Hanover Theatre and groups of 10 or more.
