Forgotten Illinois 200

Discover Ray Bradbury: A Drama, Documentary, and Music Experience

Discover Ray Bradbury will be an original performance combining drama, documentary, and music to bring to life Ray Bradbury, the famed author, Waukegan’s native son.

The drama features Grammy-winning actor Bill Oberst, Jr. performing as Bradbury; the documentary shows original interviews of people who knew or were influenced by Bradbury; the music is contemporary-style, original Green Town compositions. The performance will leave the audience of students and adults with a lively, memorable impression of Ray Bradbury and help to fill the gap between what they learn from reading Bradbury stories and the forgotten places in Waukegan that inspired him.
