my first show is today at 3:00 (12-17-05) and I am getting kind of nervous. It is for a small group of kids with their parents I have a half an hour slot to fill and here are the tricks i am going to do.

opening-D'lites
1.vanising/reappearing silk
2.cups and balls with breakaway wand
3.sponge balls
4.balloon sculptures
5.miser's dream
closing-magician dunktank with insta-snow


If you have any tips or pointers for me please tell me. Thanks in advance.

Are you planning on giving out ballon sculptures? If you are Id recommend doing that last. How long is your routine suppossed to last? It seems pretty good.

ya I am going to give away the balloons, and that does make sense to do it last. The show is going to be 30 min. long.

Does the 30mins include the balloons? Do not underestimate how long that takes. And your cups and balls must be pretty short. Other than the balloons the order looks pretty good. By the way, you're gonna get creamed for asking this so late.

crgky127 is right. You should get nailed for asking this late. Don't know what time zone you're in but hopfully you get this in time.

My cups and balls runs 20 to 30 minutes by itself, so either drop almost everything else or drop the cups and balls. The routine I would do is:
opening-D'lites
1.vanising/reappearing silk
2.sponge balls
3.miser's dream
Then if there is time left
closing-magician dunktank with insta-snow

The balloon sculptures should be done only if there is time> If you do just dogs and swords then you look like an amatuer, if you do Elmo, Snoopy, Snowman, etc it's going to add time.

No no no. We don't mean earlier as in last night. Earlier as in months ago. Like before you let people know you did kids parties. You have to have your show down before you do that. The time when you are creating your show is when you ask us.

i just got back from it, and it went really good. The reason why I didn't post this months ago is b/c my uncle just told me he wanted to get a magician for the party. but like I said, it went really good,and everyonge liked it.

balloons

-the cups and balls were really simple and it only lasted a couple min.-the reason I did it is so I would be able to do breake away wand.

You could do a breakway wand with sponge balls. It really works with everything.
