How do you get an elephant in a bubble? Only Fan Yang can answer
that as he’s done it, along with many other slippery tricks with bubbles
that have earned him 16 Guinness World Records. Yang’s daughter
Melody follows in his footsteps to host the Gazillion Bubble Show
at the Concert Hall, QPAC, for the school holidays from 23-27 June.
Tickets from $39 plus fees. The show is one of 40 events in Out of the
Box Festival, including the Snow4kids park, designed for children up to

Molly Ringwald (
) might be best recognised for her roles in
cult coming-of-age movies
The Breakfast Club
, but Brisbane will see another side to the star when she takes to
the stage (3 June) in the Queensland Cabaret Festival. Ringwald performs
with her jazz trio and features interpretations of ‘I’ll Take Romance’ and

Queensland Cabaret Festival from 3 to 12 June at Brisbane Powerhouse, New
Farm. Program details and tickets $79 each plus fees atwww.brisbanepowerhouse.org
