Ok, so I've had this idea floating around in my head for months, but I need a direction, so ideas. ANYTHING to get it out of my head and into production!

Premise: "I am a huge Star Wars fan. The first Star Wars movie changed my life. When I saw it I said right then, pointing at the screen, I want to do that! OK, so I'm not fighting stormtroopers, but I'm in show busines... you get the point.

Anyway, when I was a kid, I wanted to be Luke Skywalker. As I've gotten older, I relate more to Darth Vader (smiles at audience).

So tonight, I am going to turn an audience to the dark side of the force..."

That's where I am. The concept of turning someone to the dark side just excites me, but now I need suggestions to create something.

Would a Hippity Hop Rabbits thing be too goofy? Luke on one side, Darth on the other, and the sucker ending is Yoda?

Or a sub trunk illusion with a costumed Luke and Vader switching places?

Or any sort of Mentalism routine (like 7 keys) where the volunteer can only perform the task after they've pledged allegiance to the Dark Side?

Actually that might be good .... some sort of selection routine where the volunteer repeatedly picks the "Dark" item from an assortment of objects (cards, keys, lightsabres!)

Good luck!
