Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival Description

The Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival is an annual storytelling performance held around Halloween in the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois. Built in 1927, the Genesee Theatre is a historic performance hall that seats up to 2,500 people and was a favorite of Ray Bradbury as a child growing up in Waukegan.

Beginning in 2006, the Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival is an award-winning festival that features two performances of Halloween tales told by storytelling legends. There is a child-centered matinee show and the headlining show at night complete with spooky renditions of Halloween classics along with equally scary original stories. Past Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival performers include Megan Wells, Jim May, and Bill Oberst Jr.

Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival tickets cost around $10-$15 with tickets to a pre-show party featuring meet-and-greets with the storytellers and complimentary drinks costing around $15. Tickets are available online as well as at the Genesee Theatre box office.
