Arts Club brings to the Granville Island stage “Ride the Cyclone”, a multi-awarded Canadian play written by Jacob Richmond and premiered in Victoria in 2009. This time, the play comes as part of the Vancouver international Push Festival.

“Ride the Cyclone” is a comedy telling the story of a group of teenage friends who perished in an accident, and are given the opportunity to have one of them to come back to life. The decision making process will take them to experience various emotions and personalities, ranging from egoism to solidarity and team building.

The play runs for about 90 minutes without intermission. The actors (conformed by Rielle Braid, Kelly Hudson, Elliott Loran, Jameson parker, Sarah Jane Pelzer, and Kholby Wardell) showcase their acting, singing and dancing talents to put together a complex show that keeps the audience well entertained. Highly recommended for audiences who enjoy unexpected twists, as well as plenty of special visual effects and live music.

“Ride the Cyclone” is presented as part of the PuSh Festival and directed by Britt Small and Jacob Richmond. It runs from January 17 until February 17, 2013.
