Side Show

Side Show Key Art

October 27–30, 2016


Based on the true story of conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton who became stars during the Great Depression, this hypnotic musical follows the girls’ progression from side-show attraction to the big time — and their heartwarming search for love and acceptance under the harsh spotlight of fame.

“…one of the most emotionally wrenching and altogether satisfying shows in many a moon.” —Cititour
