Ride, if you dare.
A few youngsters will have the chance to jump aboard the roller-coaster musical that is “Ride the Cyclone” at no charge.
The board of the Alliance Theatre has provided 500 vouchers for high school and college students to see the show any time between now and when it closes on Sunday, May 26.
Students must present their IDs in person at the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office, Tuesday through Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m., or Sundays, noon to 5 p.m.
The show, presented on the Alliance’s Coca-Cola Stage, takes audiences on a spooky trip aboard a faulty carnival ride. They join five members of the Saint Cassian High School Chamber Choir, who perish, en masse, in a fatal crash.
In a twilight purgatory, each member of the choir has an opportunity to tell his or her life story in song, with the best story winning a second chance at life back on Earth.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has said to look for the “emotionally ravaging” performance from soprano Emily Rohm: “it’s quite unlike anything else you’ve ever seen before in any other show.”
