Toronto: “Emilio’s A Million Chameleons” is touring Ontario in February and March

Monday, February 20, 2023

Developed in association with Tarragon Theatre, Canada’s home for ground-breaking contemporary plays, Emilio's A Million Chameleons is a family-friendly 45-minute-long musical spectacular perfect for kids and adults alike!

Emilio runs a circus act with a million chameleons to entertain with music, magic, and amazement. His favourite chameleon of them all is Juan... the shyest little chameleon who needs to stop trying to blend in and learn to let their inner sparkle shine.

Emilio's A Million Chameleons was lovingly created by internationally-celebrated puppeteer Adam Francis Proulx, directed by Canadian Comedy Award-winner Byron Laviolette, and features music by acclaimed cabaret star Chris Tsujiuchi.


Emilio's Millions Chameleons teaches children about the importance of being true to oneself, carving one's own path, and supporting each other. Catchy tunes and playful activities transport audiences into a wondrous world of shimmer and shine that's sure to ignite the kid in all of us!

- Heather Caplap, Education & Community Manager, Tarragon Theatre

Seeing Emilio's Millions Chameleons with my four year old granddaughter was a joy. The production was engaging, funny and carried an important message about self esteem for kids. As a puppeteer and entertainer, Adam Proulx is nothing short of impressive.”

- Nina Keogh, Professional Puppeteer, Muffy the Mouse (Today’s Special)

Emilio's a Million Chameleons is an absolute delight for all ages, and I can say with enthusiasm, It is one of the most enjoyable Theatre for Young Audiences shows I've seen. It's filled with jokes, enchanting audience engagement, and a powerful message about the importance of communication.”

- Annamieke Wade, Executive Director, Roseneath Theatre for Young Audiences
