help, im desperate! I dont know what I'm going to do for my school talent show! Its 3 to 5 min, long and probably 100 to 500 people! I'm not too shure about working with invisible thread because it could brake and then I'm in trouble. I dont like thumb tips because they look too obvious. The try outs are soon soooo...... leave a messege it would really help. Thanks.......

You can't really go wrong with a TT for stage magic, as long as it is at all realistic.Airtight is really good for stage. Wild levitation would work very well too.Maybe D'Lite, i've never used one.

I suggest you do the EASIEST possible magic effects that you know. Forget anything that has anything to do with skill or threads or anything that can possibly fail. At this point in your career, your biggest problem is getting used to doing magic in public! Consider strong magic like invisible deck or a simple rope routine. Remember the simplistic tricks Blaine does on his specials? That's because in order to substitute experience, you would need to perform simple magic. I would even go so far as to study the Blaine special and see how really easy magic can go over big, aka, cig through quarter. For stage though, consider maybe a rope through body, look it up in the Mark Wilson Course of Magic or ask the Penguin Boys for something really easy that is amazing and plays big on stage. Life is long, you have a lot of time to perform the complicated stuff.

Laymen want to see magic, but more importantly, they want to see that you have magic powers, and that is only proven through the way you conduct yourself on stage. Good luck!

If your so desperate, dont do it, because if your desperate that obviously means you have no practice with your routine (since you dont even have one), and one screw up and your screwed-Josh

I agree with gtxby33. That is just sad that you think thumb tips are obvious. Pretty [edited] sounding.
