“AN EVENING OF BRADBURY”: A Staged Reading of three One-Acts by Ray Bradbury

Isadoora Theatre Company will present “An Evening of Bradbury” at Juniper Hall at Birch Creek Music Performance Center on February 25, 26 & 27.  Directed by Ross Dippel, the performance will consist of staged readings of three Ray Bradbury one-acts: A Device Out of Time, The Flying Machine, and Kaleidoscope.  In the spirit of Door County Reads' recent focus on Fahrenheit 451, in which readers catch a glimpse of a proposed future, those attending “An Evening of Bradbury” will discover Bradbury’s future through the lens of the past.  Readers at the event will include: David Clowers, Edward DiMaio, Ross Dippel, Mary Hall, Renee Kujawski, Ginger Lawrence, Mark Moede, and Chris Weidenbacher.

In A Device Out of Time, two young boys take their "time machine,” a simple mason jar of fireflies, into the old home of Colonel Freeleigh.  As the fireflies light up, so does the colonel, and with soaring, lyrical words, we are transported through time.  The Flying Machine introduces us to an Emperor in ancient China.  When the Emperor feels threatened by a man who has invented a kite that allows the user to fly, he is forced to decide whether he should maintain the security of China, or risk supporting the advancement of knowledge.  Kaleidoscope poses the question, “What would you do if you were a million miles from earth and your rocket ship was hit by a meteor, leaving you with the knowledge of certain and imminent death?”  The people in this Bradbury story contemplate their fate and philosophize about life and its purpose.

“An Evening of Bradbury” will be February 25, 26 & 27; Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2:00pm.  Isadoora will accept donations for admission; suggested donation will be $5 per person.  For more information, visit, like us at, or call 920.493.3667.
