Wency Cornejo Makes His Musical Theater Debut in SIDE SHOWManila, Philippines--Wency Cornejo, multi-awarded songwriter and frontman of the '90s rock band AfterImage, makes his professional musical theater debut in Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group's production of the Broadway musical SIDE SHOW, which premieres on August 31 at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium (RCBC Plaza, Makati City).

Cornejo will play the role of the sideshow's ringmaster, SIR, and stars alongside Kayla Rivera as Violet Hilton, Gab Pangilinan as Daisy Hilton, Markki Stroem as Terry Connor, David Ezra as Buddy Foster, and Arman Ferrer as Jake.

Nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Musical, SIDE SHOW is based on the real-life story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, who try to overcome their impediment and make a name for themselves as stage and film stars. Daisy and Violet navigate their way through fortune and fame despite their differences, and along the way learn valuable lessons about love, loss, friendship, sisterhood, and what it truly means to be unique. It features the book by Bill Russell and music by Henry Krieger, who also composed the iconic hit musical "Dreamgirls."

SIDE SHOW is directed by Steven Conde, with choreography by Cecile Martinez, set design by Lawyn Cruz, lighting design by Jonjon Villareal, sound design by Jason Crystal, costume design by Odelon Simpao, hair and makeup design by Johann dela Fuente, musical direction by Farley Asuncion, and vocal direction by ManMan Angsico.
