BASED ON THE LEGENDARY HILTON TWINS, DAISY AND VIOLET, FOLLOW THEIR HEARTWARMING SEARCH FOR LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE AMIDST THE SPECTACLE OF FAME.

Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present SIDE SHOW running from the 9th to 17th November 2018 at the Centenary Theatre, Williamstown for 6 performances only!

Based on the true story of Siamese twins Violet and Daisy Hilton who became stars during the Depression, Side Show is a moving portrait of two women joined at the hip whose extraordinary bondage brings them fame but denies them love. Told almost entirely in song, the show 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.

This 2014 revival version of the musical has a completely reworked plot and new songs. It delves deeper into the backstory of the Hilton twins., their relationship with Harry Houdini and of a proposed separation surgery, all with more sophistication and truth.

Don’t miss this remarkable true story of two sisters. The very thing that makes them different… makes them extraordinary.
