Dr Hubble takes the audience on a journey into the wonderful world of bubbles. Bubbles can be blown from anything, Dr Hubble blows bubbles from things we find around the house including his glasses and even piece of string. You will see bubbles inside bubbles, a square bubble, smoke filled bubbles and see the biggest bubbles you have ever seen. Each performance one lucky child will get put inside a bubble.

The show has been evolving for five years now. It has been performed at many festivals and shopping centres and literally hundreds of pre-schools all over Australia. Its tour ready and has very minimal tech requirements and set up. Its important to note the performance needs a wind free space.
Dr Hubble is actually world renowned circus and sideshow performer Shep Huntly Shepard.
Over the last 20 years Shep has performed in 26 countries around the world. He is the resident host of The Circus Big Top at Glastonbury Festival in the UK and has performed four separate shows in the Sydney Opera House. Shep has a natural affinity with his audiences and especially with children. He was the host of the main stage at Moomba in Melbourne for many years before he moved to Byron Bay to become a parent.
Everybody loves bubbles but Dr Hubble REALLY loves bubbles and he wants to show you why.
Dr Hubble makes bubbles from objects we find around the house like the milk bottle bubble and the gum boot bubble.
You will also see bubbles inside bubbles, a square bubble, the biggest bubbles you have ever seen, the new explode-a bubble and at the end of the performance one lucky child will be put inside a bubble.
Dr Hubble shows the children different ways to make bubbles at home and how to keep bubbles alive by blowing gently underneath them. Its fun, funny and slightly educational for everyone.

Unique Selling Point
I have a genuine love of performing and a genuine love of bubbles, these two things combine to make a charismatic, magical performance. What makes the show special is the unique bubble tricks and the 25 years of experience I bring to the stage.
I have a great website, lots of great photos, two great short promo videos and a couple of priceless quotes from reviews.
During the show, I demonstrate a few innovative things children can make at home to make bubbles with. After shows I have a lot of disscussions with families about bubble making, bubble formula etc. People are fascinated by bubbles. I also offer bubble blowing workshops where children learn some basic bubble tricks. These workshops, are much more gratifying than circus workshops because every child can achieve a result.
