Being Zombie should not be longer then a minute to a minute and a half. You will have a lot of time to fill. You did not say what other magic you own. If you do not own anything else. I suggest you go to a magic shop and start looking over the equipment.

You will have a lot of practice and routining to do before the show.

If you don't own any other magic, I think you should cancel the gig and then go to a shop and pick up some stuff and practice.

Please tell me that you have an act already! You sold yourself based on knowing one trick? I hope that you at least do that one trick very, very well.

If so do the Zombie for 15 minutes.

Yeah I've done this before..... but usually I perform it for only 3 minutes
I'm planning to do the zombie routine with the snowstorm ending is it good?

Zombie does have a snow storm ending. If you mean that you will also perform Snowstorm In China, were a chinese laundry ticket is torn and restored, then dipped in water and the dry paper flakes come from your hand holding the wet laundry ticket. Yes this is a good ending if the place does not mind you spreading tissue paper all over the place.

So now you have 5 of the 15 minutes required. What else will you perform? Is this to music?

For the opening I'm planning to perform some ball routine, from small solid steel ball (ball&tube's ball) grow to medium size aluminum ball then grow up to zombie ball... then I do the zombie routine ended with snowstorm.
but I have problem here, it is how can I do the medium size aluminum ball (golf ball size) to zombie ball, have some idea?

Im not so sure a little steel ball will be seen from stage and something that you might consider is getting McBrides magic on stage since I has some very nice zombie ideas as well as ideas for all kinds of stage work. He teaches rings, rope, cae, candle and many kinds of stage magic. So consider getting that and maybe soon. Good luck!

Manipulation, of course.

Zombie to Snowstorm is fine, as long as it flows. Maybe use your favorite Zombie vanish, into a silver snowstorm.
But, don't stretch out the Zombie. Short and sweet is the way to go there.
