Themes

  • In this musical, the victims of a roller coaster accident receive the opportunity to tell the stories of their lives. They have a chance to be seen in the way they wish, one final time. In your life, what are the ways in which you would like to be seen?
  • Many characters in this story have complicated relationships with the small town they grew up in. But upon reflection, some qualities of their town become more clear. What community might you have a complicated relationship with? How do you navigate that relationship?
  • The title of the show refers to the name of the ill-fated rollercoaster, and serves as a metaphor for taking risks in life. How do you decide which risks are worth taking, and which can be left aside? What “rollercoasters” in life are you glad you experienced, despite the risks?
