For their 80th anniversary year, Penn Players presents Bill Russel and Henry Kreiger's Side Show

Daisy and Violet are the star attraction in a carnival sideshow (they are singing Siamese twins) among many other wacky acts. But the twins have opposing dreams. Daisy seeks a life in the spotlight and Violet wants to settle down in a home with a husband. When they meet musician Buddy and talent scout Terry, who promise to make them successful in the entertainment scene, the twins' lives change forever and they struggle to balance their individual dreams with their inescapable physical connection. Based on the real lives of conjoined twins who became vaudeville stars in the 1930s, Side Show offers a unique perspective into true sacrifice, love and what it takes to make it to the top.
