“SideShow” the musical
January 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MST$10.00
The Colorado Springs Conservatory presents “Sideshow” directed by Billie McBride Jan 17, 18 & 19, 2017 at The Warehouse. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. and The Warehouse will be seating guests for dinner starting at 4:30 p.m. with the last seating at 5:30 p.m. Please call (719) 475-8880 to make dinner reservations (not included in ticket price).
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.
