Based on the true story of conjoined 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.
Side Show features the talents of the students of the Kaleidoscope's Summer Musical Theatre Intensive - a two week summer camp for young artists age 12-18, a program of Kaleidoscope's Performing Arts Studio. Kaleidoscope's Performing Arts Studio is the youth training and mentoring arm of Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People, Victoria's resident professional theatre company for young audiences.
