The reading included sound effects, reminiscent of an old time radio show. The dramatic reading cast comprised Tampa Bay residents: Colin Taufer, Nick Koenig, Josh Greenburg, Somali Rose, narrator/producer Joanie Sigal and director Kathy Sweigart.

The director of a local travel club brought two dozen members of her group. The director said, “This event exceeded all expectations. The readers made the plot come alive. It was a day we shall be talking about for some time to come.”

“The theater was founded in 2011 with the purpose of encouraging reading by doing dramatic presentations of fiction short stories written by Mr. Hubbard in the 30s and 40s,” said Joanie Sigal, the theater’s producer. “Since then we have performed for thousands of school children and adults.”

While most of their performances have been in Florida, the theater has also performed at Books-a-Million in Bangor Maine, Columbia University in New York and for the Boys & Girls Club in Harlingen, Texas.
