Actors of the East Coast Golden Age Theater will be performing the highly-acclaimed western story by L. Ron Hubbard, titled “Reign of the Gila Monster.”
(Tampa Bay, FL) — Dress in your “western attire” on Saturday, April 14, 2012, from 7-8:30pm in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Fort Harrison (210 S. Ft. Harrison Ave., Downtown Clearwater) for an evening performance of a live western story, “Reign of the Gila Monster,” written by L. Ron Hubbard. Powderville is the roughest and rowdiest town in the West, but it’s recently been reformed to the point of extinction by a new sheriff named Gilman. Dubbed the Gila Monster because of his enormous size, ugly features and mean disposition, Sheriff Gilman is obsessed with saving Powderville from its vices and silencing anyone who opposes his tyranny.
The story will be narrated by Doyle Mills. The East Coast Golden Age Theater was recently established and modeled after the Golden Age Theater in Hollywood. The featured actors include Dylan Cefail, Melissa Ryan, Saiyo Shaw, Eric Cefail, Alejandro Licea and Nick Koenig. The production is directed by Kathy Sweigart.
