Ride the Cyclone

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Brooke Maxwell & Jacob Richmond

Directed by Harry Turpin

Music Direction by Mark Rabe

In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. 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. This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived! SHOW SPONSOR: Beth Moursund


RUNNING TIME: 90 minutes with no intermission. PG-13. This is NOT the "Teen Edition."




Emily Courcy (Ocean O’Connell Rosenberg) is so excited to bring one of her favorite musicals to life! She was most recently seen on the SSR stage as Beth in Merrily We Roll Along. Other Seattle credits include The Full Monty (Georgie), RENT (Ensemble) and Avenue Q (Bad Idea Bear) at RCT. Non-PNW favorites include Next to Normal (Natalie), Now. Here. This (Heidi), Hairspray (Penny), and Heathers: The Musical (Veronica) for which she received a BroadwayWorld Detroit nomination. Much love to the cast, production team, and her wonderful partner Ross. Enjoy the show!


Nicolas Main (Noel Gruber) Nicholas is elated to be making his SSR debut and sharing the stage with his best friend Savannah! Recent credits include Whizzer in Falsettos, Tim Allgood in Noises Off (Harlequin Productions), Christopher in The Curious Incident…(SPS Theatre Collective) Inkeepers Christmas (Taproot Theatre) and two tours with Missoula Children’s Theatre. As well as performing Nicholas loves to work behind the scenes as a choreographer and director. Love to his incredible family, KB and Sav, who inspire his work every day! (he/his) 


Savannah Lynn (Jane Doe) is thrilled to return to the SSR stage, bringing this role to life....or death...stay tuned. Most recently she was seen in Beautiful - The Carole King Musical at Village Theatre (Betty/Ensemble). With SSR her credits include, Sunday In The Park With George (Celeste), The Fantasticks (Luisa), Assassins (Squeaky Fromme), and Reefer Madness (Sally).

Ashley Rose Klimper (Constance Blackwood) Ashley is a Seattle based actor, teaching artist, director and friend. She is beyond delighted to be in her first show at SSR!

Tommy Beale (Ricky Potts) is excited to debut at SSR with such a fantastic show. Having just graduated from UW where he majored in History and Drama, he couldn't think of a better way to spend his newly gained freedom. Past favorites include D Vicious in Airness (UW School of Drama), Chip in Spelling Bee (RATA), and of course Jenkins in How to Succeed (UW Stage Notes). When not onstage, you can find him practicing stunts, doing parkour, or infodumping on some weird historical topic. He would like to thank his family and friends for their eternal support on this crazy ride. Cheers!


Franco Weaver (Mischa Bachinski) Franco’s love for the stage has been growing exponentially since childhood and he is now working as an artist, theater teacher, and performer.
