Hey everyone, i was just wondering, i wanted to change from street to stage, and if you guys could help me in that traslation, meaning, giving me a list of affects, that you use, or would be nice in a presentation, and if you could in order, so i can work on it that way, and i could work on purchasing them, i have no idea where to start. Thank you, Mahalo, Miigwitch, everyone....zak~

Well, some stuff that you might already have from your street magic that would work on smaller stages and some larger stages as well might be:

-Vanishing hank
-Invisible deck
-a self levitation
-Jumbo card prodiction
-cups and balls

And now some strickly stage/parlor stuff that I have and like/use regulary (all the affects listed I like a lot and range from $5-$20; its my stage show in a brief case):

-no tear and restored news paper
-appearing cane (I have the vanishing cane but am not a big fan)
-rope thru body
-magic coloring book
-dots next
-multiplying balls
-bisection
-mouth coils
-absorbing news

This should be a good non-expensive start

p.s. most of the stuff I've spent a lot of money has been a bust

a great trick for a kids and/or small stage magic show is the pb&j illusion and you can't go wrong with the chinese linking rings

Rather than give you a list of tricks, consider the following:
A stage show contains tricks that can be clearly seen on the stage from the back row of the theater.
To me, this means no close up. However with large screen projection, close up may be done on a stage.
Rely on your talent and know how to make a good stage show.
