What I'm asking is sort of a two part question:
1) How heavy is your show (including the table/backdrop/case)?
2) How do you get it to where you're performing? Is it all in a backpack, or do you have a wagon to pull it, etc?
I realize that everyone will have different answers based on what type of show they do, etc.
I'll answer first (although I am not a professional, this is just what I do when I do have a show, which has happened 3 times in the past 2 years): My birthday show is 30 min.
1) I would say about 10-15 pounds, although I don't have any 'big' props. I also do not yet have a backdrop or a table (I just got one and that's what made me think to ask what you guys do).
2) Since I didn't bring a table in my past shows (they place already had it), I would carry it all in a box in a duffel bag.
1: Anywhere between 100-200 lbs....depending on the show...and whether it's for a stage, or birthday party.
2:My table converts into a trunk with wheels...much like the mak magic of Lefler table (the table when empty weighs about 60 lbs) my backdrops fit into a tennis racket bag... they are new on the market and were a gift to me from the creator...they open up to 7ft tall by 5.5 feet wide....when all three are setup together, there is a 7ft by 17.5ft backdrop (all three together in the bag weighs a total of 13 lbs.). And for larger kidshows, I have a stool and a trunk (houses my ring to gumball machine), and a sound system...both of those add to the weight. I park close and carry everything to the performance area myself...I usually pile as much as I can on top of my suitcase table with wheels and wheel it all in. Sometimes, I'm assigned somebody to help me carry my equipment.
I used to drive a Ford Ranger Pickup truck with a Camper top and hauled my stuff in it. Last week I purchased myself a 2006 Ford Focus ZX5 and I store everything in the hatchback and get better Gas Mileage for my long distance shows...I like to call it "The Hocus Focus" LOL
