A remarkable musical about love & embracing one's uniqueness

The South Australian premiere of Side Show arrives in Adelaide, hot on the heels of the hugely popular film The Greatest Showman.

Playing at Stirling Community Theatre for a strictly limited season this April (8 performances only), Side Show tells the true story of conjoined twins and famed entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, the starring act of a sideshow in the era of PT Barnum and the popularity of 'freak shows'.

From the writers of the smash hit Dreamgirls, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one's uniqueness and features soulful music, stunningly beautiful lyrics, and powerhouse show-stoppers.

As stars on the Orpheum Circuit, it seems that Violet and Daisy have everything they ever wanted. The one thing they lack, however, is the fulfilment of their hearts' desires. Different as they are, when it comes to matters of the heart, Daisy and Violet have the same burning questions: "Who could proudly stand beside me? Who will love me as I am?"

Brought to the stage by the award-winning team of Amanda Rowe (director), Mark DeLaine (musical director) and Kerry Hauber (choreographer), Side Show features a large, experienced and beloved cast, led by Fiona DeLaine and Rebecca Raymond as the twins, Violet and Daisy, along with other well-known, local performers.

Don't miss your opportunity to experience this stunning and bold musical with infectious performances that are sure to inspire and mesmerise!
