It’s not everyday you spot a musical cast shimmying down a supermarket travelator, but that’s exactly what surprised shoppers this weekend.

The cast of Queen’s Theatre’s community musical Our House performed a flash mob at Tesco Roneo Corner, Romford, on Saturday to publicise the show, which opens on July 27.

Director Ros Philips said: “Huge thanks to all the staff at Tesco for letting us take over the store with some real Madness!

“My favourite moment was crowds of people watching from the café getting the shock of their lives when Paul Robinson (who plays the Dad) burst into song right next to them!

“Flying down the escalator as doves singing Wings of a Dove had everyone in stitches!

“As many shoppers have now seen, this is promising to be a brilliant show with a large and enormously talented and dedicated community cast – we very much hope they’ll come along and enjoy the rest of the production.”

To get your tickets to the Madness inspired musical, which will be staged at the Hornchurch theatre for five days, go to queens-theatre.co.uk

The cast is also crowdfunding to pay for the production’s set, costumes and props go to crowdfunder.co.uk/our-house-community-musical to make a donation.
