On your radar: A production of 'Fahrenheit 451,' and some free BBQ — with music

Fahrenheit 451: It's a preview night for this Jobsite Theater play based on the 1953 Ray Bradbury novel about a dystopian society in the future in which books are outlawed and burned. See it at 8 p.m. at Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. $28. (813) 229-7827.

Christopher Bell: New World Brewery continues its free BBQ Wednesday acoustic series with cellist Christopher Bell. The 21-and-up-only show is at 7 p.m. at New World Brewery, 1313 E Eighth Ave., Tampa. Free. (813) 248-4969.

Tampa Bay Rays: The first 10,000 fans get a free Carlos Pena "Home Run" figurine at this game against the New York Yankees. It starts at 7:10 p.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. (888) 326-7297.

Kids and family

Mayor's Food Truck Fiesta: A smorgasbord of food on wheels hits downtown Tampa today as part of this food truck gathering held the first Wednesday of every month. It starts at 11 a.m. at Lykes Gaslight Square Park, 410 Franklin St., Tampa. Free. tastingtampa.com.

To watch

Series premiere; Hawaii Air Rescue, 9 p.m., Weather: First responders in a helicopter flit all over the 50th state, presumably helping people who've fallen down waterfalls or stepped in hot lava. Who knew volcanic islands could be so dangerous?

Ghost Hunters, 9 p.m., SyFy: New episodes return without team member Grant, who realized how ridiculous it is to spend time pretending he sees measurable evidence of paranormal activity when he could just go be an actor and get paid more.

Season finale; America's Lost Treasures, 10 p.m., NatGeo: Curt and Kinga want the people of Orange County, Calif., to find their best loot. Expect to see things like a hat from the county's first In-N-Out Burger and the surfboard that inspired Robert Duvall's character in Apocalypse Now.
