Cabaret & Acting

Chameleon

It is a light-hearted trip, deep into the twisted rabbit-hole of the human psyche. As passionate as it is funny, the show will inspire, entertain and start that conversation we all need to have with ourselves and each other. Karen Lee Roberts is tour guide on a hilarious journey of extremes based on real-life experiences and some figments of her unbridled imagination. She is joined onstage by legendary jazz-blues pianist, Jeff Usher, as they take you on a guided tour through the life of Alexandra (a facet of Karen’s personality).

Chameleon is a high-energy, emotionally charged cabaret that challenges the perceptions that ‘mental illness’ is a dirty word. It’s about mental wellness!

This show has something for everyone; flirtatious interactions with the audience, yoga (with a little mania on the side), beautiful blues, a measure of social awkwardness, a lap-dance and a quarter-marathon rap with beat-box accompaniment. This manically funny show about conquering adversity and battling inner turmoil is great therapy. Cheaper than a visit to the therapist this show is a prescription for a healthy dose of laughter and tears. Featuring original music and quirky text, it will reach out to minds, hearts and souls.

Karen Lee Roberts and Mr Sunshine Jeff Usher have taken It’s Not Easy Being Green to successful seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2018, the Anywhere Theatre Festival in 2017 and 2018, and an intimate season of Chameleon at Melbourne’s Butterfly Club in 2019.
