The L. Ron Hubbard Theatre: To Present a Spooktacular Performance on October 26th

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre will deliver an old time radio style performance of the western story, Shadows from Boot Hill, at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater, on Friday October 26th at 6:30pm. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

Clearwater, FL, October 20, 2018 --( This story was written by L. Ron Hubbard in 1940 and was featured in the June issue of Wild West Weekly and was Hubbard’s only western with supernatural elements. Combining fantasy elements in a western was unheard of at the time and “Shadows from Boot Hill” remains one of the highly sought after stories from the Golden Age of pulps. It was reprinted recently by Galaxy Press with the following introduction:

Every man walks with a shadow ... but what happens when he acquires a second one? Just ask Brazos who’s a cold-blooded killer for hire with blood on his hands and a posse on his trail.

As Brazos is about to discover, the Wild West doesn’t get any wilder than when a man is damned to live - and die - in the Shadows from Boot Hill*.

*Boot Hill: The name for the burial grounds or cemeteries of gunfighters, or those who “died with their boots on.” Used chiefly in the American West during the 19th century.

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

“This story is perfect for this time of year,” said Amber Skjelset, the Center’s Manager. “While it’s set in the Old West, it also has the eeriness of the supernatural – right on time for Halloween. The plot will keep the audience guessing until the very end.”

L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers of the 20th century. Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines - often 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.

“These performances are one of my favorite things to do! They are so entertaining! I feel like I am back in the 40’s,” said Francine, a regular guest.

Seating is limited. To reserve seats or to learn more about the event, contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at 727-467-6966 or
