CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday, April 13th starting at 6:30 pm, the L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre will perform, Calling Squad Cars, a detective/ mystery story by Mr. Hubbard. The performance will take place at the Scientology Information Center at 500 Cleveland Street in Downtown Clearwater and is open to the community. Light refreshments will be served. Ms. Joanie Sigal, the show’s producer, will open up the event with songs from the 1930s and ‘40s, bringing the era to life.

Calling Squad Cars, written in 1934, is about a police dispatcher who is jailed for allegedly helping a vicious gang of criminals. After making bail, he comes up with a daring plan involving the use of stolen radio equipment in an effort to clear his name. While Calling Squad Cars is a fictional story, L. Ron Hubbard used his own real-life experiences as a special officer in the Los Angeles Police Department, from 1947 to 1949, to create an authentic foundation for his detective fiction.

“Radio theatre has a rich and storied tradition that developed in the 1920s and grew in popularity over the next several decades,” said Ms. Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Info Center. “Radio theatre is a form of dramatic entertainment that in its heyday brought family and friends together around the radio to share in thrilling adventures, raucous comedies, and compelling mysteries. Millions of listeners tuned in to listen to the broadcasts, featuring the top actors of the time.”

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 of the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction. Between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared on the pages of legendary pulp magazines—with as many as three titles an issue bylined under more than a dozen of L. Ron Hubbard’s 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.
