Performance: Emilio’s A Million Chameleons

Time: 12:30-1:30 pm and 2:30-3:30 pm
Location: Gallery 8
All Ages

Emilio’s A Million Chameleons is a family-friendly musical spectacular. Emilio is excited to bring you his circus act with a million chameleons to entertain you with music, magic, and amazement. His favourite chameleon of them all is Juan… the shyest little chameleon. At its heart Emilio’s A Million Chameleons is really about a little chameleon named Juan (and maybe a not-so-little human named Emilio) who needs to stop trying to blend in and learn to let their inner sparkle shine. It was created by internationally celebrated puppeteer Adam Francis Proulx, and directed by Canadian Comedy Award-winner Byron Laviolette. Music is by cabaret star Chris Tsujiuchi.
