Modern cult classic and viral hit, ‘Ride the Cyclone,’ makes SWFL premiere at Lab Theater


The cult classic Ride the Cyclone makes its Southwest Florida premiere at The Laboratory Theater of Florida February 23-March 23.

With book, lyrics, and music by Jacob Richmond and Brooke Maxwell, the story follows the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir that are cut short in a freak accident aboard a rollercoaster. They awake in a surreal, carnival limbo in which they compete to win a prize like no other: the chance to return to life. The modern cult classic and viral hit Ride the Cyclone will have you asking the big questions while having amusement park fun.

“…this quirky, smart, and darkly hilarious show reveals the resilience of the human spirit.. – TheaterMania

“This show is an explosion of talent on our stage,” promises Producing Artistic Director Annette Trossbach. “It’s eccentric and zany with layers that peel back to reveal the deeper purpose and joy of life. The music and choreo are outstanding. One by one, the students perform to show why they should be the one to be brought back to life. The songwriting is dynamic and eclectic, with everything from European post-war cabaret to autotune rap to cheer, and why this musical is so popular today.”
