Based on the true story of conjoined twins and famed entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one’s uniqueness. It follows their progression from England to America, around the vaudeville circuit and to Hollywood on the eve of their appearance in the 1932 movie Freaks.
Starting in a run-down Texan sideshow run by the girl’s guardian Sir, Daisy and Violet are the headline act amongst an array of human oddities. Eventually escaping the sideshow thanks to a Vaudeville agent, the sisters are thrust out into the world where all is not as it seems, where their emotions are toyed with, and where ultimately they realise that it is their relationship with each other that will sustain them.
This amateur production of “Side Show (2014 Broadway Revival)” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest… and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales.
