Spa-Con IV Caught in a Time Warp With ‘Rocky Horror’s’ Barry Bostwick!

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ is an iconic touchstone to the pop culture of the 1970s, and Barry Bostwick is still a fan favorite for his role as Brad Majors in that classic movie,” said Bill Solleder, marketing director of Visit Hot Springs and one of the founders of Spa-Con. “He will be on hand to meet and greet Spa-Con attendees, pose for photos and introduce a special screening of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ at Bank OZK arena the night of September 21.”

The schedule for Bostwick’s appearance at Spa-Con 4 is:

  • Noon – Rocky Horror Picture Show Q&A
  • 1 p.m. – Photo Session with fans
  • 2 p.m. – VIP Pass holder meet and greet
  • 9:30 p.m. – Screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with a special introduction by Bostwick at Bank OZK Arena

The multi-genre comics and pop culture convention annually attracts more than 5,000 fans to Hot Springs.

The online IMDB website summarizes “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” thusly:

“On a wild and rain-swept late-November evening, somewhere at an empty stretch of road outside Ohio’s merry Denton, the blissfully-affianced, prudish, and boringly innocent young pair of Brad Majors [Bostwick] and Janet Weiss find themselves stranded on their way to visit an ex-tutor. Instead, the couple will inadvertently unearth the cross-dressing Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s spooky lair of inexhaustible oddities, just in time to partake in the out-of-this-world mad scientist’s proud unveiling of his latest, delightfully extravagant, and most daring creation — the ultimate male and the perfect sex symbol: the flaxen-haired, Rocky Horror.

“But, little by little, as the effervescent transgressive force gobbles up whole the unsuspecting visitors of the night, Brad and Janet slowly begin to embrace the potent fascinations of seduction, while an idolized Rocky roams free in the mansion.”

Winning Golden Globe, Tony and Peabody awards for a long and multifaceted career Barry Bostwick continues to work in all genres, with recently released films “The Incredibles 2,” “Grand Daddy Day Care,” “Bigger Fatter Liar,” “A Mermaids Tale” and “Three Days in August,” among others.

He also has starred in recent TV offerings on “Will and Grace,” Girlfriends Guide to Divorce,” “Still The King,” “Signed Sealed and Delivered” for Hallmark and “Great Performances” on PBS.

Probably best known for playing Brad Majors in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” and Mayor Randall Winston in the long-running sitcom “Spin City,” he also created the role of Danny Zuko in the original Broadway production of “Grease.”
