The Return of the Flashmob: Seckatary Hawkins
Reintroducing young adventures on the old river.
A Centennial Celebration of the beloved children’s tales by Covington native Robert F. Schulkers
Starting in 1918 for the Cincinnati Enquirer, Robert F. Schulkers's childhood adventures detailed what daily life was like for children in the Cincinnati area. His tales of Seckatary Hawkins and his cohorts soon grew into syndicated weekly stories in newspapers around the country, novels, comic strips, radio serials and a national fan club.
Now, on the 100th Anniversary of his creation, Queen City Flash is bringing Seckatary Hawkins back down to the river banks where he began his adventures in a brand-new flahsmob-style play.
It's 1918. America is at war! Meanwhile, on the home front, a ragtag group of mischievous boys are waging their own battles against boredom as a self-described "Rejiment." Join Seckatary Hawkins, and his lovable young cohorts, as they protect the river banks from the Pelham Gang, a rival rejiment from across the river.
