Jackson Gillman is so adept at changing into a wide variety of colorful characters, that he is called the "Stand-Up Chameleon."He might be a salty lobsterman one moment, and then one of the various creatures he comes across while fishing the next.Join Jackson for a rollicking mix of interactive songs, movement, and stories that is guaranteed to delight and enchant you and your family.Head to Salt Pond Visitor Center at 7 PM on Tuesday, August 4 for a free, one-hour show in which he will draw on his fishy repertoire, from the sandy beach to the briny deep.

Jackson Gillman's performances for families, children, and educational groups reach out and touch the audience, making them laugh, making them think, and leaving them delighted. You might find song, dance, mime, or sign language incorporated into his interactive and educational performances - whatever works to bring audiences of all ages along for a ride into his wildly imaginative world of creative adventure.

This upcoming program is part of the annual "Tuesday Evening Series" at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Held weekly at 7 PM in the summer in the air-cooled comfort of the visitor center auditorium, programs focus on the diverse natural and cultural resources on the Outer Cape and are suitable for all ages.
