Queen City Flash

Queen City Flash is Cincinnati's Flash Mob theater company presenting a form of theatrical presentation new to Cincinnati while also offering free community performances to under-served communities in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Queen City Flash's first production, THE COMPLETE TOM, is a new, expanded look at Mark Twain's writings on Tom Sawyer, pulling together alternate sources and combining them with his classic novels. THE COMPLETE TOM is a four play cycle and will be presented throughout the 2014-2015 season at various locations. 

Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures? I mean the adventures we had down the river and the time we set Jim free and Tom got shot in the leg. No, he wasn’t. It only just p’isoned him for more.

"Then we went down and had a swim, and then Tom came up and spelled me, and me and Jim had a swim, and then Jim spelled Tom, and me and Tom had a foot-race and a boxing-mill, and I don't reckon I ever had such a good time in my life. It warn't so very hot, because it was close on to evening, and we hadn't any clothes on, anyway. Clothes is well enough in school, and in towns, and at balls, too, but there ain't no sense in them when there ain't no civilization nor other kinds of bothers and fussiness around."   |   Chapter VIII

"... he started the balloon up a little, and stopped it again as soon as the end of the ladder was ten or twelve feet above ground. And there was the lion, a-ripping around under me, and roaring and springing up in the air at the ladder, and only missing it about a quarter of an inch, it seemed to me. It was delicious to be out of his reach..."   |  Chapter V

What Audiences Are Saying:

I like the “storytelling” atmosphere. There were well-made props but being outside made it feel more intimate than a show in a theatre.”

”Puppets! Actors! Awesome!”

”Loved the enthusiasm of the players and seeing them outside”

”Loved it - kids were riveted by the story of Tom, Huck, and Jim
 
"We landed Jim on top of the head, with an American flag to protect him, it being a foreign land; then we sailed off to this and that and t'other distance, to git what Tom called effects and perspectives and proportions, and Jim he done the best he could, striking all the different kinds of attitudes and positions he could study up..."   |   Chapter VII
