Many styles collide in Belfry’s latest offering

Take a ride on this roller coaster play

It’s a comedy, it’s a tragedy, it’s a musical.

It’s Ride the Cyclone, the latest offering onstage at the Belfry Theatre.

Presented by Atomic Vaudeville, it tells the story of the members of a teenage chamber choir from Saskatchewan who die in a roller coaster accident, but are given one final chance to express themselves to the world after death.

The show runs July 5 to 17. Showtimes are Tuesday to Saturday at 8 p.m., with Saturday matinees at 4 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. There are no shows on Mondays.

If you attend the July 7 show, stick around afterward for the Belfry’s “Carnival Opening,” a celebration of the past season and a kickoff of the coming one.

The event will feature dancing, midway games, food, and even a freak show.

Tickets are $20 or $25, plus HST. High school student tickets are 50 per cent off and university/college students 25 per cent off.

Tickets are available at 250-385-6815 or online at https://tickets.belfry.bc.ca.
