Richard Dean Anderson will be appearing at this year’s Chiller Theatre event in Parsippany, New Jersey on October 25 & 26.
The announcement was made today by Richard’s organizer, Paul Brown, stating that this will be Richards first-ever appearance in New Jersey.
Richard will headline other guests which include Cassandra Peterson of Elvira fame along with cast members from Airplane, The Warriors and Revenge of the Nerds.
His schedule will be a little different from what fans have seen in most of his past events with appearances being on the Friday and Saturday rather than his traditional Sat-Sunday appearances. The Friday show is an evening event from 6 pm to 11 pm and Saturday will be 10 am to 7pm.

Such an honor to meet my childhood hero, MacGyver, in the flesh! Richard Dean Anderson was super kind and sweet – and he seemed to really like my drawing of him! (I gave him a print to keep 🤗) I made the drawing entirely freehand with colored pencils. Any other original Mac fans out there?? #macgyver #richarddeananderson #angusmacgyver #stargate #theresonlyonemacgyver #80s #draw #drawing #freehand #coloredpencil #instaart #artcollective #artnerd #antman #phoenixfoundation #coloneljackoneill #jackoneill #nawden #pencil #pencils #portrait #pencildrawing #worldofpencils #originalart #realism #fanart #photorealism #artistic #jjdart
