Well, I've been having a ton of problems with the final trick I was going to do, so, I need some opinions of what I should do.

So...what do you guys suggest for a final trick at a kids show. Ages 3-10, 400 or so of them, and I'm on stage.

I close a regular show with hippity hop rabbits (it leaves them laughin)


but if its a birthday i put on a chefs hat call up the birthday child, give him or her a chefs hat and I pull out my dove pan i say its a magical cake pan and we are going to do some cooking, then i pull and egg out of my square circle deseption (the eggs blow out) and i break it and through it in the pan, then i pull sugar packets out of the square circle and i leave them rapped give a crazzy laugh and through em in (i do the same with flower) O yea i have a strip of flash paper already in there and i through a match and it flares up, then i put the lid on the pan, and i have my birthday girl or boy pick up the lid and he or she finds one of those mini personal cakes they are like 5 dollars at a super market (not a spring cake but a real one) and i pull a plastic fork and knife and paper plate out of my square circle deseption and serve the girl or boy a slice and say bon apatit in a crazyyy way.

thats routine gets the other kids wishing they had me so they could get there own cake. hahah

hope this helps

MagicianBrad,
I have a routine with a Square Circle to end my show but the square circle blends in with my show, so it works for me.

A Square Circle might not work for you, tell us a little more about your show and we might be able to help. What trick do you do before the closer?

Mike

On Stage - 400 kids? A large scale production would be nice or maybe even a levitation.

Serving a kid a cake out of a magic prop?

Hygiene? Allergies? Lawsuits?

Not smart dude.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but people have been producing cakes at birthdays for years. I've seen them come out of Duck Pans, black art boxes, and any other production box/device that you can name.

What was your original idea? Perhaps we can help you mold it instead of trying to blindly pull an idea out of the air for your act that we know absolutley nothing about...

Some where near the end of the Wilson Course there is a The End or Thankyou sign.

Big production with streamers and confetti, never end with a vanish.

Using volunteer(s) at the end gets you a bigger round of applause when you cue the audience to applaud for them they will keep going for you. Unless sending them back to their seats will be a hassle that you don't want to deal with at the end.

Maybe do something that relates to something in the beginning. IE reproduce something vanished.

If you have enough clean up time after or the stage wont be used by someone else, fill the stage, especially with colors.

For 400, make darn sure you have some way to remember you by and mention your name. Perhaps just before the last trick say something like Before I leave you with one last thing tonight, I'd like to say you've been a great audience etc I've got some flyers over there etc.

If you use music, have a big finish in that too.
