The L. Ron Hubbard Theatre Brings the Old-West to Downtown Clearwater

/EIN News/ -- CLEARWATER, Fla., June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Saturday June 16th the L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre brought the Wild West to the Church of Scientology Information Center with a Western performance of The Ranch that No One Would Buy. The performance was “standing-room-only” for fans of dramatic readings and radio-styled literary entertainment.

L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theater
The cast and crew of the L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theater presented the classic "The Ranch That No One Would Buy" at the Scientology Information Center on the 16th of June. The performance, based on a story written by L. Ron Hubbard during the golden age of pulp magazines, entertained modern audiences with an old-time radio presentation, including sound effects.


Guests enjoyed a light spread of refreshments and a “delightful” rendition of well-loved Western songs by the multi-skilled performer, Joanie Sigal, who is also the theatre’s producer and narrator.

During the performance, actors Colin Taufer, Jim Bowe, Tony Muse and Winston McDaniel brought authenticity to the story creatively enacting the plight of “Jerry Delaney” - the helpless newcomer who finds himself in the middle of a high stakes “winner-take-all” card game and the heart-stopping duel with a surprise twist.

One guest’s comment summed up the evening stating, “I really enjoyed the performance a lot! It was very professionally presented. I liked the human realness of each character. It wasn’t as if they were acting!”

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine actors, costumes and sound effects bringing the exciting pulp-fiction stories by L. Ron Hubbard to life.

L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers through the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction.  Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines—with as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, Mr. Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.

“The Information Center has two unique roles.  It provides information on Scientology and it’s also a gathering place for community meetings and events,” said Amber Skjelset, the Manager of the Center.  “We host high-teas for social and non-profit groups, receptions and theater performance such as these for the community.”

The Center itself is open seven days a week, from 10am to 10pm.

The next theatre performance will be on the 18th of August. To attend the event, or for more information about community events held at the Scientology Information Center, please contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at (727) 467-6966 or email amber@cos.flag.org.
