The Westchester, New York, venue has released full casting for the upcoming production, which starts April 22.

White Plains Performing Arts Center has released full casting for its upcoming production of Henry Krieger and Bill Russell's Side Show, set to play the Westchester, New York, venue April 22-May 8.

Rebecca Kuznick (Sistas) and Emily Kristen Morris (Something Rotten!) will lead the cast as conjoined twins Violet and Daisy, respectively, along with Jack Brewer (Cinderella at The Muny) as Buddy, Andrew Foote (Jekyll & HydeLes Misérables) as the Boss, Bronson Norris Murphy (The Phantom of the Opera) as Terry, and Miguel Ángel Vásquez (Ragtime) as Jake.

Rounding out the company in the ensemble will be Matthew Blum, Brianna Brice, Logan Graye, Matt Henningsen, Keith Mankowski, Jenna Leigh Miller, Taylor Okey, David Neil Ossman, Alexander Rothfield, Emily Royer, Rebecca Skowron, and Rosie Staudt.

Based on the real-life Hilton twins, Side Show follows two conjoined sisters on their search for love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame. The work premiered on Broadway in 1997 starring Emily Skinner and Alice Ripley, and a revised edition returned to the Main Stem in 2014 starring Erin Davie and Emily Padgett. White Plains Performing Arts Center's production will present the original 1997 version of the work.

Frank Portanova will direct the production, with music direction by Stephen Ferri, choreography by Antoinette DiPietropolo, scenic design by Chistopher and Justin Swader, lighting design by Daisy Long, and sound design by Jon Weston. Suzi Bonnot is stage manager.

“Twenty-five years later, Side Show resonates today more than ever,” says Portanova in a statement. "The show is a call for authentic universal empathy in order to advance our understanding of the human experience. We will only make meaningful change and progress once we remediate marginalization in all its forms in our society. In order to do that, Side Show asks us to find and see the other in each other.”
