Gazillion Bubble Show @ The Canberra TheatreShare Event on Facebook Share Event on Twitter Share Event on LinkedIn
The Gazillion Bubble Show at the Canberra Theatre was 70 minutes of bubbles. Every kind of bubble you’ve never imagined and all just thin spheres of liquid enclosing a gas in one of nature’s most delightful forms where the physics is irrelevant but the result the magic that kids love and is perfect entertainment for all ages.
Bubbles of every shape, colour and size ranging from teeny tiny to enormous danced around the stage and out into the audience or disappeared in that unexpected moment it takes for them to pop. There were square ones, bubbles in bubbles, a kaleidoscope of colours and even ice cream bubbles. Kids were enclosed in bubbles, selected from that ‘pick me’ moment of a request for volunteers with hands waving enthusiastically. And most ignored the rules to stay in your seat to chase bubbles around the theatre.
Divided into sections for the presentation by bubble master Melanie Yang the most exciting was the laser show which gave an illusion of a bubble fanatics rave as the laser danced the colours into the audience. Exciting for one tiny volunteer a magic forest of white than white bubbles making her shoes bubbles as she ran amongst them. But the cascading finale filling the theatre with tiny bubbles and giant pretend bubbles circulating with the help of all who could get near them became kids playtime and nobody wanted to leave.
Unusual, entertaining and slick and simple, it has been a New York success story. The pleasure for most is in the joy of the kids chasing those elusive bubbles.
