A Tribute to Ray Bradbury
Readings & rememberances presented by
Ray Bradbury's Pandemonium Theatre Company
Ray Bradbury, one of the world’s most popular authors, in 2012 at 91. Often categorized as a science fiction author, he preferred to be called a fantasy writer. He also wrote everything from mysteries to poetry.
He began his professional writing career as a joke writer for Burns and Allen, but a series of now-classic books including “Fahrenheit 451,” “The Martian Chronicles,” “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” “The Illustrated Man,” “Dandelion Wine” and more, established him as America’s Storyteller and one of the great fantasy and science fiction writers of the last century.
Mr. Bradbury also loved theatre, and produced plays based on his works as well as original scripts at venues in the Los Angeles area for nearly five decades. For the last six years that he actively produced, his artistic home was the Fremont Centre Theatre in South Pasadena, which hosted his shows “Green Town,” “The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit,” “Dandelion Wine,” “Fahrenheit 451,” “Autumn People,” “The Machineries of Joy,” “The Illustrated Bradbury,” “Invisible Boy,” “2116” and “A Ray Bradbury Christmas,” presented by Ray Bradbury’s Pandemonium Theatre Company.
