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

age 8 at various locations across the cultural precinct from 21-28 June.

, 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

‘The Very Thought of You’, as well as a throwback to her ’80s fame with

‘Don’t You Forget About Me’.

Another star not normally associated with cabaret is Harry Shearer

whose distinctive voice is unforgettable from

The Simpsons

but he, too,

plays a different part with his wife, singer-songwriter Judith Owen, in This

Infernal Racket (12 June), a performance that tackles fame, celebrity, politics,

religion and relationships with music and laughter – and yes, listen up because

Mr Burns just might have something to say about that!

Queensland Cabaret Festival from 3 to 12 June at Brisbane Powerhouse, New

Farm. Program details and tickets $79 each plus fees at
