Aquila Theatre performs author Ray Bradbury’s famous novel
A literary classic, “Fahrenheit 451,” is being brought to life as OSU Allied Arts welcomes Aquila Theatre to the Seretean Center Concert Hall on the OSU campus on Friday, Mar. 7 at 8 p.m. While the production is based on Ray Bradbury’s visionary parable of a society gone awry, Aquila Theatre brings an innovative and modern theatric touch to the classic.
In addition to the performance, Stillwater Public Library and Edmon Low Library have partnered with Allied Arts for a program called, “One Book, One Community.” The libraries are giving away copies of “Fahrenheit 451” and encouraging the community to read the book together in preparation of the performance on Mar. 7.
Brandon Mitts, Allied Arts & Special Events manager, said the libraries are doing a great job working together and promoting the Aquila Theatre performance.
“The libraries are really getting the community excited about the event,” Mitts said. “It’s great to see the community reading the book together, because Aquila Theatre is really based on these amazing works of literature.”
For decades the OSU Allied Arts office has brought top-notch talent to the Oklahoma State University campus. The Allied Arts office seeks to enrich the lives of students through the arts. Allied Arts hosts six performances during the year. For more information, visit alliedarts.okstate.edu.
