St. FrancisEmilio's A Million Chameleons @ 2 pm

This family-friendly musical spectacular is all about being true to oneself, supporting each other, and letting your inner sparkle shine!
Emilio runs a circus act that boasts a million chameleons who entertain with music, magic, and amazement. His favourite chameleon is Juan, the shyest little chameleon who just wants to blend in. Throughout the show, we learn that Emilio is Emilio Jr. trying to do the show exactly the way his father had, and there aren’t a million chameleons after all – just Juan using his amazing powers of transformation. It turns out that both members of this best friend duo have a bit of work to do when it comes to trusting themselves, and the gifts they have to offer the world.
