The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre performed, The Professor Was a Thief, on August 24th in downtown Clearwater. The ‘standing-room-only’ audience enjoyed the radio-style reading in the historic Scientology Information Center. The story highlights the hustle and bustle of a news room. As New York landmarks disappear, that newsroom’s reporter tries to get to the bottom of it all. The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine actors, costumes and sound effects to bring the exciting pulp-fiction stories by L. Ron Hubbard to life.

L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers during the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction. Between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in legendary pulp magazines.  With as many as three titles an issue, Mr. Hubbard used some fifteen pen names. He has had 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation.

Danger in the Dark, the theatre’s next performance, is scheduled for September 25th at the Scientology Info Center. To find out more call 727-467-6966
