No 'Show' after Sunday; musical ends run at Foothill College

The Foothill Music Theatre production of the Tony Award-nominated musical “Side Show” – the true story of conjoined twins who rose to become stars in the 1930s – is scheduled to close Sunday in Los Altos Hills.

“Side Show” tells the story of Violet and Daisy Hilton, twins conjoined at the hip, and how their extraordinary bond brings them fame but denies them love. It follows the twins’ progression from England to America, around the vaudeville circuit and to Hollywood on the eve of their appearance in the 1932 movie “Freaks.”
