You have to do 30 minutes on stage and you have $60?? Well that sounds like quite a challenge! I did a small 15-minute cabaret act that ended up costing about $1000!

Check out http://www.my-magicshop.com its based in Switzerland I believe so shipping shouldn't be a problem.

As for effects I would suggest using simple things that you can get a lot out of. I think Bill Malone's "Cards Across" will play well for a largish audience; he also has a nice presentation for the "Invisible Deck". Other things that don't cost much do include a lot of practice such as manipulations with cards, billiard balls and thimbles.

Tricks with money, all I can think of that would translate well for a large audience is the "Osaka Bills" by Jahn Gallo. It's a device that enables you to produce bills from thin air; much in the same way as you would do with cards.

Hope this helps.

Well I have stuff , but I want to do something new with regular tricks I do.
For this show I will change my routines .
I think to made one story with this tricks but I need more suggestions.
Hummingbird card, raven, vanishing money ( TT ) , well now I need trick with
producing or changing bills, rope tricks - cut & restored , proffesor nightmare,
and Cobra rope (what do you think for that trick http://www.magicproshop.com/the-kobra-ko......479.html ), hand guillotine, and I think about performing Torn by daniel garcia ( Is that good choise for this show) what
do you suggest me for another trick with cards. At the and I will must pull piece of paper from the box to anounce the winner of a car, and that I think to do with spider pen, instead of pulling the award ticket from the box , ticket will fly to me and that would be like big supprise (When spectators are not expecting nothing fun) . What do you think , is that good idea , have you better , WRITE !!

You could do some thing with a vanishing or appearing cane. Also a dancing cane my serve you will if the lighting is right.

You already have a TT. Get a couple of silks for a vanish and reappear. Silks pack small and unfold big and are easily seen. Get a 12" and 6" in contrasting colors. That will cost under $10.00. Use a silk streamer in your TT for about $4.00, or a paper streamer would cost even less.

If you have a deck of cards, buy a book on card tricks and learn more routines. If you have a TT, just look for more ways of using it. The point I'm making here is to look for things you could add to the utilities you already own, this will make new illusions by having different effects.

1. Check lighting for humming bird card.
2. Think twice on raven, that MAY not be good for a large group of audience. Can they see what happen?
A novice't reflection: I like watching my audience's jaws drop, but sadly in reality I'm just too busy to enjoy it. Smile

I would strongly advise against doing this. By levitating the ticket from the box, you may make people think that a completely random choice was not made, and we're talking about a CAR here, not a cheap prize.
