Additional Book Material by Bill Condon
Directed by Avian Jangula
March 31 – April 23, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up! See Siamese twins go from penniless freak show performers to vaudeville stars! Based on the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, Side Show offers a complex look at love, race, and societal expectations in 1930s America through the eyes of its most marginalized outcasts. One plus one equals three in this heartfelt musical about what it means to always have someone by your side.

Tickets are $22; $19 for students, seniors, Fringe Button holders, and groups of 8 or more; or $16 for groups of 20 or more, and are available in person at the Ames Center Box Office or through Ticketmaster online or at 1-800-982-2787 (additional fees may apply).

For group sales, call the Ames Center box office at 952-895-4680.
