“…riotously funny, always surprising and filled with five shows’ worth of solid ideas.” Now Magazine, Toronto
We are pleased to welcome Atomic Vaudeville to the Belfry, showcasing some of Victoria’s most talented young performers.
It’s a comedy, a tragedy, and a musical ride as a teenage chamber choir from Uranium, Saskatchewan die in a roller coaster accident at a traveling fair. Karnack, a mechanized fortune-telling machine, feels responsible for the young choir’s demise, and gives the teens a chance to express themselves to the world after death. Ride the Cyclone is their final recital, where they celebrate their individuality while coming to terms with their untimely demise.
Help us get the word out. Download the Ride the Cyclone Poster here, print it out and pop it up on your fridge, in your office or wherever. Thanks.
