a Hayes Theatre Co. production 

Ride The Cyclone

Book, Music & Lyrics by Jacob Richmond & Brooke Maxwell
Additional Material by Alan Schmuckler

In this hilarious and exhilarating story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a rollercoaster. 

When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other – the chance to return to life. 

Bursting with witty, memorable songs and featuring some of the most compelling characters in modern musical theatre, this remarkable show makes a uniquely uplifting and deeply funny case for what makes a life worth living. 

This bold, striking, and genre-busting musical started life in Canada, before becoming a hit in Chicago and New York, and then a record-breaking online phenomenon (with over half a billion views on Tik-Tok).

Now the show has its long-awaited Australian premiere in an all-new production from Hayes Artistic Directors Richard Carroll & Victoria Falconer.
