Flashmobs for World Theater Day! March 27th! Get Involved!

Check this awesomesauce out.


The New York City World Theatre Day Coalition will be producing a series of FLASH MOBS to celebrate World Theatre Day on Saturday, March 27th. A flash mob (or flashmob) is defined as a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time, and then quickly disperse.

There will be seven separate flash mobs from 11am - 5pm. We've designed the event like a "pub crawl" so performers can go from one mob scene to another. Performers are welcome to participate in all of them or only one or two.

Email us at info@nycwtd.com to get involved. Upon receipt of ones email, we will send out SECRET INSTRUCTIONS on when and where to report for each spectacle. We are trying to gather hundreds of people so forward this invitation to your theatre companies, your friends, and families, you do not need to be a theater artist to participate.

The descriptions of the flash mobs are as follows:

* The Message Reading

We will storm a NYC park to play everyone's favorite theatre game, with a crowd this big; it should be quite a sight.

After the Flash Mobs there will be a Celebration and Networking Event from 5:00pm - 8:00pm at The Houndstooth Pub, located at SE corner of 37th Street & 8th Avenue.
