Round House Theatre launches its new season with Ray Bradbury's stage adaptation of his science-fiction masterpiece Fahrenheit 451. Directed by Sharon Ott, the multimedia production incorporates cutting-edge video, projection and sound design created at the renowned Savannah College of Art and Design. David Bonham, Jefferson A. Russell, Liz Mamana and Katie Atkinson are among the cast in this drama, in which books are banned, free thought is discouraged and the masses are spoon-fed a diet of interactive reality shows. Not so far-fetched, after all. To Oct. 9. Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda. Tickets are $25 to $60. Call 240-644-1100 or visit roundhousetheatre.org.
