A high school chamber choir from Uranium, Saskatchewan, perishes in a freak roller coaster accident. The teens are brought back to life by a mechanized fortune-teller for one final concert. This is the premise of Ride the Cyclone, the musical theatre work from Victoria’s Atomic Vaudeville. Winner of the 2012 Dora Award for Outstanding Touring Production, Ride the Cyclone has been hailed as a “work of pure genius… a dark and delicious carnival of lost souls”.
In this podcast we talk with Atomic Vaudeville’s artistic producer Britt Small about Cyclone, which will appear at the 2013 PuSh Festival in Vancouver, their monthly cabaret and the alternative theatre scene in Canada.
