The theatre troupe Les Caméléons will be back on stage again this year with two performances of The Nose by Nicolas Gogol (1836), adapted for the theatre by Robert Bellefeuille and Isabelle Cauchy.

This play is performed without words by nine, talented actors living with an intellectual impairment. They will be accompanied, live, by musicians from the Klezmoushe Band.

Their first performance will be on April 18 at 7 p.m. in the Salle Albert-Dumouchel in Valleyfield (Valspec) as part of the Fêtes internationales du théâtre (tickets are $15). The second will take place April 28 at 7 p.m. at CVR high school in Ormstown ($10). Tickets will be on sale at the door for both performances.

Les Caméléons prepare for their performances thanks to weekly rehearsals from the end of September to the end of April, the ongoing work of some ten volunteers and in-kind or financial contributions from artists, individuals, businesses and organizations in the community.

The Haut Saint-Laurent theatre troupe is comprised of Louise Arcoite, Jérémy Caron, Nora Clavin, Meghan Condie, Marc-André Dancause, René Gobeil, Ian Hooker, Melissa Shewchuck and Allan Vaincourt.

Theatre allows these actors to integrate better into society and to see their efforts rewarded by the audience's appreciation. Come to their annual show at the salle Albert-Dumouchel or CVR high school and you'll be completely won over. Last year's production was a resounding success.
