"Ingeniously dark and funny." -Washington Post

"A wonderful, touching and memorable roller coaster ride of a theatrical experience, for teen and adult audiences alike. With the show’s supernatural atmosphere... this is, quite simply, a beautiful 'Dream of Life' come true." -Chicago Theatre Review

"Both eerie and funny, as well as subversive, serious, touching, and great." -Vulture



RGC Theatre's smash production, and the New England Premiere, of Ride the Cyclone makes a triumphant return!

On Monday, September 14th, at 6:17pm, children boarded the Cyclone roller coaster. At 6:19pm, the Cyclone’s front axle broke, causing it to derail at the apex of the loop de loop, hurtling the children to their deaths.

Ride the Cyclone is a high octane, raucous comedy that presents the story of the St. Cassian Chamber Choir, who passed in this horrible accident. Emceed by The Amazing Karnak, a fortune telling machine designed to predict the exact time and place of someone’s death, each child competes in a mysterious contest for the opportunity to come back to life.

Following tales of success, imagination, passion, rage, and forgotten souls, Ride the Cyclone is sure to warm your heart, chill you to the bone, and fill the room with laughter. This incredible and spooky musical will leave you hooked on Karnak’s mysterious insight on mortality:

Your lucky number is seven. You will soar to great heights. Be sure to ride the cyclone.

It goes around and round and round again...
