Also happening at the R25 Complex inside the California Stage theater is Ray Bradbury’s “Mars Is Heaven”. He wrote this classic short sci-fi story in 1947 for a magazine and later adapted it for radio. California Stage is re-creating this radio drama for your entertainment. Join in on the celebration of Ray Bradbury’s birthday on August 22nd. The show starts promptly at 7pm so make reservations and get there early.

We are also happy to welcome guests from our series about Sac Geeks. Mike O’Brien from The Miniature War-gaming Society will be on the show to share information about their meet up group and activities. If you like warring games, history and historical re-enactments you may enjoy learning more about this fun group. They play miniature war games that are played kind of like a chess game, but with figures and a miniature landscapes. They base their games on historical events and sometimes they put a creative twist on the games, too. There’s also a real art to painting the figures and creating these fantastic landscapes. Stay tuned to learn more.
