CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Community members are invited to watch the Cheyenne Little Theatre’s opening performance of “Fahrenheit 451.”
The play will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. It will also be available Nov. 11–12 and Nov. 17–19.
Based on the classic Ray Bradbury novel, 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper ignites. Per the play’s description, this powerful drama is about the inner struggle of Guy Montag, a fireman. Montag has worked as a civil servant for 10 years burning books, but lately he has become increasingly unsure about what he is doing and about his vegetable-like existence. It is not until he meets 16-year-old Clarisse, who is filled with strange ideas, that he is led into a dangerous and highly combustible situation. Now he must choose between continuing his nonexistent existence and risking everything for the right to think.
The local adaptation is directed by John Lyttle and produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
