Then a vanishing silk from that i will move on to the magic coloring book. after that i will do cut and restored rope after do it with gum as a joke. then i will do professors night mare. then i will do some stuff with a change bag after that i will do cups and balls followed a sponge ball routine with the same finally do needle through balloon animal then make balloon animals for the kids

May I ask what age group you are performing for? It really makes a big difference.

Thanks!

I'll be really happy to answer your question and give you feedback, but first I would really like to know your target audience that you are putting this show together for. Afterwards I promise I will go trick by trick and give you my opinion and the "why" behind my reason where appropriate.

ok a few things

1) for the gum joke, my personal opinion is that this is a magic show. The magic should be the end. Joke all you want, the more jokes the better, but end with the magic. Start off by doing the gum joke, then finish with the actual cut and restored rope.

2) when you juggle how are you going to make it enjoyable. By just juggling there is nothing exciting. Try juggling to music, or come up with a juggling routine. (if you already have one then just ignor this)

3) cups and balls for little kids is not good. Not because the trick is bad but because kids usually sit on the ground. Unless you do the cups and balls on the floor (which will look REALLY bad), the kids will not be able to see what's going on.

4) Is needle through balloon your best trick? You should always end with your best trick so if it is then leave it there, if not then move it. Personally i have never seen a needle through balloon routine that is finale worthy. If you came up with one then Great, but i doubt it.

5) What stuff with the change bag?

Hope this helps!
