RIDE THE CYCLONE from creators Brooke Maxwell and Jacob Richmond tells the hilarious and outlandish story of six teenagers from a Canadiana chamber choir whose lives are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other in order to win a prize like no other - the chance to return to life. RIDE THE CYCLONE has garnered numerous awards including a Dora award, Jeff award, Joe. A. Callaway award and a Suzi Bass award. The soundtrack was released in 2021 featuring the original cast.
