“Reign of the Gila Monster” March 14, 2015 for One Night Only
This weekend, for one night only, the L. Ron Hubbard Theatre group is proud to present “Reign of the Gila Monster” a Wild West tale.
Powderville, the roughest, toughest, rooty-tootin’ six-gun-shootin’ cow town on the whole blamed cow trail from Loredo to Chicago is on the verge of extinction at the hands of a lawless marshal, nicknamed the “Gila Monster.” Out of civic pride, Howdy Johnson, one of the city founders, decides to go back and set things straight. But does Howdy have what it takes to take down the Gila Monster? Or will he end up paying the ultimate price?
Join us for a night of live Hollywood radio theater in an intimate cabaret-style setting.

Radio theatre has a rich and storied tradition. Developed in the 1920s and growing in popularity over the next several decades, it’s a form of dramatic entertainment that, in its heyday, brought family and friends together, as they gathered 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 Theatre, established in 1997, is dedicated to recreating that extraordinary experience for today’s audience—going back to the roots of true Hollywood entertainment. –more–
