Looking for some ideas/advise of closing out a finale silk production. My finale is going to be a silk production from a squared circle. I will have plenty of cover, but don't really know what to produce. I am considering a 36" silk, but have produced one earlier in the show via a blendo, so I wasn't sure if that would be good to do a second time, and live animals aren't really an option. What else can be used as a "ending" to a silk production? Thanks in advance for the help.

After lots of silks, some wine glasses and champagne glasses full of liquid, I used to use the 200' cresey coils followed by a large spring flowers at the end. It took the usual length of my tape, hooked on classics.

A good ending to multiple silk production could be a foutain of silk combined with spring flowers or maybe a large 6 foot blendo silk.

You can also steal an Appearing Flag Staff easily under cover of those silks.

If you work with lifestocks, you can try production of an Appearing Bird Cage etc...

Hope these help...

A nice finale is to produce a six foot silk, open it out, and then bring it back to cover the square circle. A form pushes up from the square circle, rises higher and higher and suddenly you whip away the six foot silk to reveal your assistant, apparently produced from the Square Circle (but we know better, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!).

Thanks for all the great replies. I think I am going to give the flag staff a try. I think that will get a big reaction. Thanks again for all the ideas.

This will fit into a square circle, a flagstaff may not.
