Come on a wild ride deep into the twisted rabbit hole of the human psyche. Chameleon brilliantly portrays a new point of view on 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 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. This show tells the story of Alexandra, played by Karen Lee Roberts (who has a lived experience of mental health), 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. Chameleon is not just for those challenged by mental health issues, it is for all people in the community. Each person out there has a friend, a family member, or a little part of themselves that can relate. It is entertaining, educating, and great fun for a mature audience.

This high-energy cabaret follows the rise above adversity of one woman struggling against the odds. It is as funny as it is heart-warming, informing about the prevalent issue of mental health, and is sure to entertain.

Featuring quirky text and original music, it’s a meaningful look into survival. This cabaret brings up issues of vital social importance whilst taking you on a wild ride through the extremes of a person’s personality; a journey of highs and lows, laughter and tears.
