The Casper College Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Fahrenheit 451” May 1-3 and 6-10 at 7:30 p.m. on the McMurry Mainstage of the Krampert Theatre (2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, May 3). The play is from the novel by Ray Bradbury and directed by Douglas Garland. Tickets go on sale April 28 and are $12 for adults and $10 for children/students.

On Thursday, May 1, the department will host a symposium, “Future Hopes, Future fears,” featuring Casper College faculty and staff of the Nicolaysen Art Museum and Natrona County Public Library. The topic will be the issues confronting humanity’s future. In the college’s black box theatre.

For those of you who haven’t memorized the plot of Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451,” here’s a refresher, courtesy of a college press release:

“Fahrenheit 451” is a gripping story both disturbing and poetic: a visionary parable of a society gone awry, in which firemen burn books and the state suppresses learning. Meanwhile, the citizenry sits by in a
drug-induced and media-saturated indifference. More relevant than ever a half-century later, “Fahrenheit 451” has achieved the distinction of being both a literary classic and a perennial bestseller.
