Production commemorates Ray Bradbury’s birthday

At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 22, California Stage will present “Mars is Heaven” before a live audience as it broadcasts the 1954 version on “The Voice of Sacramento,” Access Sacramento.

The actors of California Stage will present a live on cable and streaming broadcast from The Three Penny Theater in Midtown Sacramento to commemorate Ray Bradbury’s first birthday away from this planet.

The late Ray Bradbury wrote the classic sci-fi drama “Mars is Heaven” in 1947 as a short story for a magazine he edited.

He later adapted it for radio in 1954, and then in 1992, set it for television.

This exciting tale about the first manned spacecraft to land on the “red planet” still holds its relevance through the ages of human imagining.

Bradbury’s philosophy viewed the future of space travel with awe and fear. In this production, we search the face of Mars to see if there are beings hidden among the craters, and if so, are they friendly or not?

The California Stage Ensemble is directed by Jay Patrick. “Mars is Heaven” stars, Joshua Glenn Robertson, Michael RJ Campbell, Jonathon Hanson, Nina Collins, Cody Parcell, Laura Lee White, Jes Gonzales and Jay Patrick.

To be part of the live radio audience, reservations are required by calling 916-451-5822.

The Three Penny Theater is located in the R25 Arts Complex at 25 and R streets in Midtown Sacramento.

Ticket prices are $30.

There is easy free parking available.

To hear the show live on the radio, tune it in on the Comcast cable system at 88.7 MHz, or to get it streaming live on your computer, find The Voice of Sacramento on the Access Sacramento Website and hit the blinking icon that says “THE VOICE.”

For more information call 916-451-5822 or visit the Website at calstage.org.
