I am 12 years old(live in Virginia) and I do want to go professional sometime and I figured it would be best to start with Kid shows. I have a routine set without patter, presentation etc., but I plan to get one of Ginn's books on that. Here is the routine, in order:
1.Peanut Butter and Jelly Illusion-A good opener for the kids to get them interested.
2.Professor's Nightmare- I would start off the ropes section with the classic trick.
3.Cut and Restored Rope- Continue the ropes routine with another classic cut and restored rope.
4.Rope to Silk-One last eye opener for the ropes, then its on to the silk section.
5.Milk to silk-Produce even more silks
( Looking for a silks routine here)
6.Double Color Changing Silks-top off the silks with some visual color changing.
7.Appearing Cane- turn the silks used into a cane.
8.Magic Temple- Produce some sponge balls for the next section.
9.Sponge Balls Routne-making up my own
10.Color Change to Jumbo Square- End sponge balls with a color and shape change.
11.Magic Coloring Book- Classic Visual trick for kids.
12. Vanishing Crayons- after "used" to color the book, make them vanish
13.Vanishing Cane- after used as a wand to produce and change stuff, make vanish also.
14. TT-used to vanish silks from the vanishing cane.
15.(Maybe) Slush Powder- maybe "Dunk the Magician"
16. Joker Tube- Big finale that will be memorable for the kids and adults.
Thats it, I will gladly take suggestions on order of tricks or different tricks altogether,I also plan to do balloon animals at the end of the show
