Not saying you do, but if you post a video with your presentation, we can turn it into something good.

Ok I will when i get a chance.
If this thread is dead by then I will either make a new one. Or find this one :D

anyways. I am not to sure what I am going to do.
I have a 8 months to plan it out.

what should I do?
I was thinking about somehow incorporating the rave card in with the D'Lites

like mayby start with the rave card and have my M5 in my back pocket and as the rave card gose around me, my M5 will grab it and I could act like I am all confused and try to grab it from the other side out of the air or something.

Then activate my D'Lites and go from there with another D'Lite routine.

Its your show buddy, we arent going to come up with the routine for you. If you want to progress in magic, you have to figure that part out for yourself.

I just thought of a good idea to try and get kids to pay attention!

I was thinking about what i do when i want a kid to calm down while I am baby sitting. And it came to me
two things.
1.bribery
2.contest

Ok for the Bribery.
Do not be all like "please please please sit and listen so i will look good i will give you candy!"
be more like "guess what? while I am doing my magic I will be looking for the bestestested kid hear and who ever is gets a prize!" And you could by the wand to diploma trick (7$ and it comes with 50 wands to diplomas!) and you could sighn it for them and what ever!


well I am not sure what you could do for the contest one.
i kinda incorporate the contest and the bribery together.

You know...it's too bad that you can't buy experience with that 50 bucks you have!

All the props in the world probably couldn't help you!

You simply don't book a performance without a show PERIOD! :wink:

Kyle is right. Would you be happy if someone sold you a product that hadnt actually been made?

Bestestested? Dont talk to the kids like babies, especially as you are doing 8-11 year olds!

Seriously, after reading everything, I'm coming to the conclusion that you're a hopeless cause. You've been given the advice that you need to succeed. You have money in which you can spend on books to get more information about performing for kids. There are courses out there that you can purchase. You can even go to your local library and read up on kids. Yet, instead of doing the work we've suggested, you keep asking the same tired questions. You've shown that you aren't willing to do the work that is needed to succeed, and because of that, you will get no where.

You're accepted to perform a show, yet you have no show to perform. You make it clear that you have no idea what you're doing, or what you will do once you actually have to perform this show. You keep changing how long you have until you can do this show. All of this screams to me that you should just cancel any show that you may have. Explain to them that you are not nearly ready for a performance, and that once you are, you will contact them, and discuss the details.

I have no idea how you could have performed any show, because you've shown a complete lack of understanding of how to organize a show. It also seems that you don't actually take our advice at all. I doubt that you read the majority of it. Which you really should read it all, because it will help you. But to me, it seems like you're just another lazy kid, trying to make some quick money because you think it will be easy. But you're dead wrong.

Now, I suggest you go back over this thread, and take notes on what we've told you. Instead of asking us the same questions over and over again, go out and search for some books. Heck, you can even search the internet for some more advice. I guarantee you will find a plethora of it. And then, after you've done you're work, then see if we have additional advice. Otherwise, you're just wasting our time. There is no reason for us to do all the work for you, if we don't get the benefits. We will help, but you first have to help yourself.

Look,
I have read everything anyone has posted.
I have a routine that I use.
I have my stuff I am using.
I know how to use them all.
The show is in 8 months
I thank everyone for everything they have posted.
I am not a lazy kid looking for a quick buck.

I am reading up on a lot about kid shows.
I am not a hopeless cause.
I do understand everything everyone is saying in here.

Please If your going to tell me anything or have any tips ideas please do not tell me that I am just a lazy, hopeless, kid looking for a quick buck.

Because I am not.
Have you ever seen a professional 15 year old magician?
I haven't. And I know I am not a professional.

And I will be practicing my routine until the show.
And I will sit down and look at what could go wrong and I will plan for that.

I am doing this because I love it. Its my hobby, I have dedicated a lot of my time so far into this and I am not going to let someone tell me I cant do it. Because I know I can.
And about your curses idea, I live far away from any ware ware there could be a magic course.
So i have to read books. And thats what I do.

If you have any more advice or anything you think i should do. Please tell me.
I really do like all this help I am getting. Just you are preciveing me very wrong some how.
