First, improve your spelling. I had to read this twice to know what you meant. Second, it's too late to dicide what you want to do. You have to perfect your tricks so you can do them blindfold, and you have a good patter. That can take forever. If you started practicing now, it would be awful. You just don't have enough time. Sorry to be harsh, but it's the facts.

sunny hit it on the nose. Make a few well structured "routines" not just some individual tricks. sence this is for like 15 people, cups and balls would work great. Learn some routines with those!

It's the sad truth. You can't assume that just because you've done magic for a year or so you'll be good at it. I've been into magic for about eight or nine years now and I know I'm not great at it (final year exams get in the way of practice).

Professor's Nightmare is a pretty foolproof trick IF YOU PRESENT IT WELL with good patter (which reminds me, I should make a thread about good patter on that forum). Without a reason for making the ropes stretch and shrink other than by the will of the magician leaves the effect rather empty - you need a context for it. But that's beside the point and best left for the Penguin's Only forum regarding that trick.

Two words: Sponge Balls. Any great routine can wow any number of walkarround spectators. Mark Wilson's routine (adapted) has been in my performances for about 15 years, and it never ceases to amaze, amuse, bemuse, and befuddle.

Of course, if that doesn't work, do the old "Saw the Principal in Half" routine. Always a crowd pleaser, but if done incorrectly, requires a new principal........

Hope that helps.
