Hi,

I am a kids show magician that has been asked to perform at a community carnival in a "strolling magician" or "street magician" roll. It's sponsored by my church and I will do this for free; there will be a lot of children there. I have several effects in mind (sponge balls, cut and restored rope, miser's dream, TT magic) ..., but I need help on basic set up.

1) Should I set up a table and have a mini-stage show with minimal props or should I wear a vest to walk around and not have a
"base location" to set/dispose of props?

2) Where do you reset?

3) From what I have read, I need 3-4 good routines.... But after I end, I invision mobs of kids chasing me around or raiding my magic table (if I have one) because it will be harder for me to have control in this situation as I normally have at a party. How do you "get away" (or is this a problem)?

4) What other problems will I face?

Thanks soooo much for helping me!

David

Hi, the best way is to wear a Pouch, you can put everthing inside this Bag. Look at
http://www.zauberladen.com
they have the best Pouches for sale. There is a Picture from the Cellini Pouch. Sorry about my very bad English, I am from Switzerland and I try to write and read those Languages.
See Ya,
Shorty

Hey David,

Depending on your performance personna, especially if you are doing a one time strolling gig, try grabbing a carpenters nail pouch. It will hold a lot and although the "strings" are a little skimpy - you can load em up pretty good.

It makes a cheap/easy pouch. And although it doesn't compare with Cellini's - it works in a pinch.
