APA’s Musical Theatre Department Presents “Side Show”

Huntington Beach, Calif.: The Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts (APA) presents “Side Show,” its Musical Theatre Department’s annual fundraiser and show. “Side Show” will run from January 11-13 and 18-20, with Friday and Saturday evening shows at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. The show will be held in the APA Studio Theater at 1905 Main Street, Huntington Beach. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $40 for reserved VIP at

“Side Show” is a musical based on the true story of conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton who became stars during the Depression. The show is a moving portrait of two women joined at the hip whose extraordinary bondage brings them fame, but denies them love.

APA’s Musical Theatre Department will present eight performances of “Side Show,” with each performance featuring a pre-show one hour before show time. The fundraising event will be complete with opportunity baskets, auctions, and hors d’oeuvres, with all proceeds going to APA’s Musical Theatre Department.
