Flash Mob erupts at Scottsbluff Walmart to promote Theatre West production

Posted: Updated:
It's opening night for Theatre West's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the best way to promote it may be a F-L-A-S-H M-O-B.

A flash mob broke out Tuesday afternoon at the Scottsbluff Wal-Mart, as actors promote Theatre West's first major production of the summer. 

A lone vocalist was quickly joined by the entire ensemble near the checkout line. Shoppers at Wal-Mart seemed a little baffled at first, but as the musical number progressed, the crowd's response grew. 

Theatre West Director Judy Chaloupka says the idea of a flash mob to promote the production was a no-brainer. "It just seems to me that it gives a little bit of exposure that you might not get from any other place. It's hard today to find a  way to get all the people... so this was a unique way we hoped to get to some people." 

Performances are set for June 18th through the 21st, and June 25th through the 28th. Each show will start at 7:30 p.m. at the Little Theatre at Western Nebraska Community College. Tickets are available for purchase by calling the box office at 308-635-6193.
