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. 


Queen City Flash is a community-centric theater company dedicated to open access to the arts. By untethering the performing arts from physical space, prohibitive costs and traditional theatrical expectations, Queen City Flash unites local artists with their communities to create new, impactful theatre.

Currently, our programming falls under:  Flashmobs, Community, Activism, Fringe, and Flash | U.
