Cast members of Tyler Civic Theatre’s presentation of Disney’s “Newsies The Musical” crashed the Arc of Smith County’s Funlover’s Dance with a surprise flash mob performance of their song “Seize the Day” on Thursday in the Tyler Rose Garden Center.

Stephen Rainwater, director of the summer musical, said the Arc group got the first official preview of the show.

“Seeing the Arc group tonight, and the joy on their faces watching the kids, made the last four weeks of work worth it,” Rainwater said.

Arc of Smith County is a nonprofit organization that works on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The show opens July 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Tyler Civic Theatre in Tyler. For more information, visit
