SHOW INFORMATION

FROM THE CREATIVE TEAM BEHIND ‘THE GREATEST SHOWMAN’!

Inspired by the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, SIDE SHOW is a remarkable musical about love, acceptance and embracing the unique.

Along with an assortment of other circus ‘freaks’ including the Bearded Lady, Dog Boy and the Human Pin Cushion, The Hilton Sisters make ends meet playing a headline act at a seedy side show, languishing under the rule of an oppressive ringmaster.

But when spotted by a talent agent, with a little encouragement from the great Houdini, they are thrust into the spotlight of the famed 1920’s Orpheum Circuit. They soon become the highest paid vaudeville stars of their time; but whilst Daisy relishes the spotlight, Violet wishes for a quiet life with a man she loves, and who loves her.

Can they balance their individual dreams with their inescapable physical connection? SIDE SHOW is a heart-warming search for first love and acceptance, amidst the spectacle of fame and scrutiny under the spotlight. This revised version was reworked and originally directed by Bill Condon (The Greatest Showman), featuring a soulful score by Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger and stunningly beautiful lyrics by Bill Russell (Elegies for Angels and Punks and Raging Queens), SIDE SHOW is filled with beautiful ballads and powerhouse show-stoppers.

Little Theatre Company is fundraising in partnership with Equal People Performing Arts (EPPA).
