Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga Presents "Side Show: The Musical”

When: Specific times available on the website
Where: Barking Legs Theater, 1307 Dodds Ave
Cost: General Admission $20; Senior Citizens $17; Students $17

Kicking off the 2019 season, Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga will present the musical SIDE SHOW by Bill Russell and Henry Krieger. SIDE SHOW was a cult favorite, though short lived, musical from the 1996 season on Broadway. It follows the lives and loves of the famous Siamese Twins Daisy and Violet Hilton. The Hilton Twins, conjoined only by a link of flesh near the hips, were staples of the Side Show Circuit in Europe, Australia and America from their childhood. Their talents, along with several manipulative managers and wards, propelled them from the side show into vaudeville and then eventually into motion pictures. The musical, SIDE SHOW, takes a biographical perspective of the sisters' rise to fame. Performance times and ticket prices can be found online at http://www.ensembletheatreofchattanooga.com or by visiting our Facebook page.
