80th Birthday Tribute to Ray Bradbury
Radio drama, California Artists Radio Theater, 2000, produced and directed by Peggy Webber.
Artists Radio Theater (CART) was founded in 1984 by actor, director and
producer Peggy Webber. Their productions have been broadcast on radio stations
in California and across the US. Many of their award-winning productions
are also available commercially, on disc and for download.
In 1995, CART had produced a 75th birthday tribute to Ray Bradbury, bringing together a star-studded cast many of whom had previously worked on Bradbury productions. In 2000, they produced this follow-up to celebrate Bradbury's 80th birthday. It was performed in front of an audience at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
The show consists of readings from Bradbury's stories and poetry. Many of the readings are dramatised.
