News Flash: Someone told us recently that our lineup needed more Superhero, so we fixed that in a FLASH. Please welcome Grant Gustin to the Washington State Summer Con on Sunday, June 25th. Grant has played the iconic role of Barry Allen for nine seasons on THE FLASH, one of the most popular series on the CW Network.
Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, Grant always enjoyed performing. While attending Granby High School, he participated in the prestigious Governor’s School for the Arts program to focus on musical theatre. He appeared in “Cabaret,” “All Shook Up,” and “Little Shop of Horrors.” After graduation, Gustin was admitted into the BFA Music Theatre Program at Elon University in North Carolina. During his sophomore year, he decided to audition for the Broadway revival tour of “West Side Story” and toured across the country with over 400 performances.
Gustin joined the third season of the popular musical series, “Glee,” where he played Sebastian Smythe, the lead of Dalton Academy’s Warblers singing group. Grant has also played the iconic role of The Flash / Barry Allen in several crossover appearances on “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” and “Legends of Tomorrow.”
Grant will be with us on Sunday only at the show. His schedule has already been set for a full day of photo ops, autographs, and a featured panel on the Centennial Stage at 12:15 pm on Sunday, June 25th. A limited number of Grant Gustin Superfan Packages, Photo Ops, and Autographs will go on sale tomorrow night (5/24) after the season and series finale at 9 pm PST. You will need a Sunday, 3-Day, Sunday Faimily, or VIP Ticket to purchase these items.
