Thanks a lot, only two mistakes well that is a tremendous improvement from how many mistakes I made before I became a grammar host. Tom believe it or not I use a dictionary all the time. Please feel free to help me when ever you can, believe me I need it.

"Cheque" may be a word which shortly becomes obsolete in England. It will be replaced by "cash." In case our American friends do not know what I am talking about, CHECK this out:

There has been a lot of discussion on the Café about those entertainers who work out of a suitcase, and those who lug trunks full of dealers standard colorful wooden and metal props into a show. There is no right or wrong to this, but do you think children actually notice if you have large colorful props, and fancy painted tables? I don't believe they do. The magic is in YOU, the performer, not in the props. The props are merely a vehicle to project the wonderful, larger than life personality of you the performer. You will be the one to amaze the little ones, to make them laugh, and to make them happy. You will be the one they want to invite back year after year to entertain at their birthday party. It has little to do with your props. They will not be inviting your props back....they will be inviting you back. Get Creative!
This is one of the best posts I've seen. I agree totally. I have several shows. Most are pack small, play big routines. If you are a good entertainer, you can make a small piece of Magic big! It is you the entertainer that makes the show great!

Well, you don't need to say it three times! Though of course, the "rule of three" is one of our standard devices. I still feel that great props enhance a show, and even if you're the best magician in the World, kids will still love you more if you have some crazy, funky props and puppets for them. There is no doubt that if you learn to engage kids with your humour and personality, you'll win most of them over, but adding in the big, bright colourful boxes and Wacky props will engage them in other ways.
My attitude has always been to provide a galaxy of wonder and fun. That might mean some clever finger-flinging, but much more often, it's about hilarious patter, careful routining, logical show building, plenty of "stuff" to look at, and variety......LOTS of variety. And possibly the most important thing of all - connecting with your audience at whatever level you find them.
I'm pleased to see that some folks are starting to search the archives here at the MC. Virtually every question has already been answered, and it makes a lot more sense to dig up an old thread and revive it, than to ask the same old question again and again.....
