I have a question. What kind of trick would you do for them? I got invited to perform at one, can anyone help me? I want to add a good big illusion at the end. I do have a rabbit that is part of my act. If anyone can help me with a trick that would be cool. I do have access to a magic building shop also so I can make anything I need to make. But not sure what I could do. It has to be at least 30 min

thanks

One Illusion 30 minutes at a Carnival??? Why 30 minutes...what kind of carnival would want that?

If it's a real carnival 10 in 1...then the Blade Box is the money maker. That could milk about ten minutes. But then if it's a real carnival 10 in 1 they already have one. Smile

The most time could be spent doing the Girl To Gorilla (and make BIG $$$)...you could get 15 minutes or more out of it.

Try more details here.

Sweet mother of mercy please tell me you already have an act! If you have an act and the promoters/management have already seen it then I suspect that they are more than satisfied with it. If they have not seen your act but hired you sight unseen from your promotional materials then do the act you promoted. Why would you want to change it at this late date?

If you don’t have an act take a bye on the fair. Don’t burn the venue for a future performer.

If this is a kids / family show, there are tons of threads covering festival shows content in the little darlings section, and also festival show promotion in the tricky business section, with plenty of information. Covering magic trick selection, promotion, services to sell, back of room selling, etc.

There is lots of good information on existing threads. Remember to look beyond the first page in a section, and read older threads as well as the current ones. I would also encourage you to use the search function of the Café with keywords like "festival" or "fair" to help you track down those threads. Smile

Here's a couple of links to get you started:

Cafe thread... "Can you perform outside?"

Cafe thread... Working The Festival Market

Cafe thread... Favorite fair or festival tricks

There is no such world as "kewl", except in the world of people who aren't taken seriously by anybody.
