Charlie Chaplin’s son of Vaudreuil-dorion circus
The son of iconic Hollywood actor Charlie Chaplin will be the spokesperson for the 2012 edition of the Festival de cirque VaudreuilDorion, which will come to the area from June 22 to 25. Eugène Chaplin, president of the International Comedy Film Festival in Switzerland, as well as a well-known documentary filmmaker and recording engineer, will be a member of the jury of the inaugural International Circus Competition at the Festival de cirque VaudreuilDorion.
Organizers say the competition will attract premier circus performers from across the globe such as Montreal Circus School graduates Will Underwood and Heloise Bourgeois, winners of a gold medal at the prestigious Festival mondial du cirque in Paris.
The Vaudreuil-dorion circus festival will kick-off with a parade, and will include giant puppets, fireworks, musical performances and much more. There will also be a tribute to Chaplin on the circus’s webpage.
