2014-04-16 07:27:18 - When a mysterious syrup falls into the wrong hands, what disasters could occur? Find out at Ybor City’s Ybor Square on May 17th.
TAMPA: On Saturday the 17th of May, starting at 7pm, guests will be treated to an old-style radio reading of L. Ron Hubbard’s classic modern fantasy “The Last Drop.”
Originally written in the heyday of pulp fiction, “The Last Drop” is the tale of a mysterious syrup from Borneo, and what happens when it ends up in the hands of an over-eager bartender, trying to invent his own signature cocktail.
The performance, which includes refreshments, will be held in the Chapel of the Church of Scientology of Tampa, located in the historic Ybor Square, located at 1300 East 8th Avenue. Doors open at 6:30.
The four-cast performance stars JJ Pinkus, Joshua Greenberg, Eric Cefail and Nathaniel Barragan, and is directed
by Kathy Sweigart and Joanie Sigal, producer of the East Coast Golden Age Theater.
“We are very excited to have the Golden Age Theater back in Tampa,” said Mimi Kintzel, the Community Affairs Director at the Church of Scientology of Tampa. “Mr. Hubbard’s stories are a lot of fun and people of all ages enjoy them.”
During a long and distinguished career, Hubbard earned the reputation as one of the world's most popular and influential authors. He pursued writing in all its many forms, including plays, short stories, novels, film scripts, poetry, articles, essays, nonfiction books and more. In over 50 years as a professional writer, he wrote upward of 60 million words of published fiction and non-fiction—over 550 published titles with still more yet to be released.
"What is generally missed,” L. Ron Hubbard once remarked, “is that my writing financed research.”
The East Coast Golden Age Theater has been performing the stories of L. Ron Hubbard to audiences throughout the Tampa Bay area, including the Boys and Girls of the Suncoast, the Villages and live on the radio in Ocala, since spring 2011.
This is the fourth show that the Church of Scientology of Tampa has hosted over the last few years.
“Ybor Square was the first brick cigar factory in the United States, and as it was home to Mr. Vicente-Ybor’s cigar factory, it has a very special place in the history of Tampa,” added Ms. Kintzel, “We love opening our doors for the community to see it for themselves.”
Refreshments will be served during the show. The performance is free, but guests are asked to RSVP to Mimi Kintzel at 813-872-0722.
