Based on the true story of conjoined twins and famed early 20th century entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one's uniqueness. Though they are conjoined, they yearn for very different lives. One twin loves the limelight, the other longs for a simpler life. Starting out as a circus side show act, they soon become stars on the Orpheum Circuit. Violet and Daisy seem to have everything they have ever wanted. But the one thing they don't have, is the fulfillment of their hearts' desires. Side Show features soulful music, stunningly beautiful lyrics and powerhouse show stopping numbers. Side Show is a true story that will touch audience's hearts.

"Goes right to the heart of every emotion without ever becoming sentimental."
