Chameleon – Karen Lee Roberts

Event Description

For the show Chameleon, you as the audience will choose the course of the action! When you purchase tickets, you will answer questions to determine what happens in the cabaret. Look out for the link in the email with the tickets. You have control of Karen’s destiny!

This hilarious, emotionally charged, one woman cabaret has a relatable moment for everyone! A sweet yet very real insight into dating, fitness and the dreaded high school reunion will double as a great night out and free therapy for all. Come on a wild ride deep into the twisted rabbit-hole of the human psyche.

Chameleon brilliantly portrays a new point of view of the norms of mental illness through heartfelt stories of a woman’s journey to mental wellness. With original music from the world of the blues, Chameleon packs a healthy dose of funny for the mind, body and soul.

This show tells the story of Alexandra, played by Karen Lee Roberts (who has a lived experience), working through situations in her every day and finding clarity. Mr Sunshine, aka Dr. Jeff Usher (a vision impaired jazz blues legend), is her guiding light on piano.
