What an amazing run of Side Show we had! This show is rarely produced and to be honest, I hadn’t even heard of it when my partner suggested we do it. But wow, what a story.
Here’s the synopsis: “Based on the true story of conjoined twins and famed entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one’s uniqueness. As the starring act of a sideshow, helmed by an abusive ringmaster, Violet and Daisy Hilton are eager to accept an offer of fame, fortune, and potential romance proffered by Terry, a talent scout, and Buddy, a budding musician.”
“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 fulfillment of their hearts’ desires.”
We had a smaller cast for this show and every one of our performers were challenged to present dynamic characters and intricate harmonies.
I took a step back from costume this show to focus a bit more on the screenplays I have coming up the production pipeline but these were some crazy costumes and my team did a great job with them.
