At 8:17 PM, the Saint Cassian High School Chamber Choir will board the Cyclone roller coaster. At 8:19, the front axle will break, sending them to their tragic demise. Trapped in fantastical carnival-like purgatory, the recently deceased teens discover a mechanical fortune teller, who invites them to tell their stories of life interrupted, with the promise of a prize like no other.

Welcome to the West Coast premiere of Ride the Cyclone, a wildly original new musical. Part comedy, part tragedy and completely unexpected, this wonderfully weird story is at every turn satirical, macabre, creepy, campy and hilarious!

Co-produced by 5th Avenue Theatre & ACT – A Contemporary Theatre

This may just be my new favorite musical. The story is great, the music is catchy, and it’s the perfect mix of quirky, creepy, and hilarious. I saw it on April 7th, and have been humming “What the World Needs” and “The Ballad of Jane Doe” constantly. You need to go see it. Now.
