Yeah. I was in a show once and I never got paid. It was only kids in it and was titled "Future Star Magicians". After the show, I soon found out it was a fundraiser show for the next year's magic convention which I have no info on. This year it was in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Many great magicians were there including Sylvester the Jester, John Charles, Tyler Wilson, Donavan Deschner(A.K.A "Double D"), Kardenni or Dennis, Jim Pace, our own local magician, Wyatt Scott. They are all great magicians. It was out first annual "Battle of Alberta" convention. The convention was my first and it was a blast. Next year in Calgary, Alberta is another convention (unffortunately I can't make it) "PCAM" Check it out here: www.pcam2007.com
Good luck with your magic, and hope all goes well.
