Hey guys, I have a show to do the 19th of November, and I have my effects picked out, and I am purchasing the new material now. My questions is how do I deal with hecklers? I have picked up a few sucker effects to keep them quite, but the majority of the effects are regular effects. The show has a bunch of kids and adults, but what I'm worrying about are the few teens that are coming. I talked to the mother to get all the information needed, and I heard one of the girls talking in the background, and I could tell she was going to be a problem. I have some simple effects for kids, and some impressive effects for older audiences, but how can I keep the teens entertained, and keep them quiet?
Also, this will be my second show, and I'm a bit nervous, any suggestions to use to remain calm while performing?
BTW, I don't know about adding music, is a performance fine without music, or does it help to add some within the show?
I realize these questions may have been asked already, but please respond with answers, other than "Do a search." I thank every single person who responds with answers, thanks in advance!!!
