Emmy-award winning actor and Georgetown native will portray Ray Bradbury at the Strand Theater on July 6. 

The Strand Theater will present a special theatrical production entitled “Ray Bradbury Live (Forever)” on July 6 as a fundraising event for the theater.

The two person traveling show features Emmy winner Bill Oberst Jr. as Ray Bradbury as well as actress Stacy Rabon as Ray’s wife.
