 Post subject: Showing tricks twice dilemma

Here's my problem: I'm a young magician, and school is my main place to do tricks. School is a pretty enclosed environment, and I have a big group of kids that I show tricks to. The problem is, there's no possible way to show it to everyone at the same time. What do I do/say if a kid who has already seen the trick comes up and tries to watch when I'm doing it again, for different people? I can't try to do anything physical, because it's not clever (and I'm not too strong). This is a big problem, please HELP!!! :(

What you could do is present the trick in another form. So make another storyline and do it in a different speed etc. Most spectators don't even notice you did the same trick twice. But don't do the two of them too fast after eachother ofcourse. And btw this don't allways work for every trick as you might know.

You might want to add more routines to your arsenal, so you can easily go to other effects that they haven't seen before. Also, using a different presentation is a good idea. Like if you are doing Invisible deck, you can present it as the invisible deck one time and the next time you do it say that in the deck I made a prediction, and go on.

I also perform at school. I had this problem at the start, but then I simply said I would only perform for three people at a time. I would pull them to the side and perform, and then if anybody else tried to come in and sneak a peek I would just stop.

this is much better because I get to do the same effect a dozen times instead of once in front of 10 people half of whom can't get a good view
