Okay thanks first.

I open with a magic to music number after a professional Dee Jay intro. My last party in the heat had about 3/4 shade for kiddies. The party lasted about a hour and the kids stayed put the whole time. One parent had to come and spray water on them also which had an interupt.

AFter the music piece with magic, I go into SOS (story line also), rabbit production (volunteer produces) (best yelling). After that, PBJ, some silk vanishes with first letting the silk hit the ground and they tell me they see it etc. Along the way volunteers are used....My last show I added siberian chain escape in there.

I forget the script for the inbetweens but I did use the strato sphere on my head and read a child's mind thingy. The breakaway wand. ALso had a goldfish production me wearing a finding nemo hat. I end with a Sq Circle with some comedy in there also done to music.

That was the jest in the heat last show. Of course it was only last Saturday so I woudlnt be looking for a referal this early. Do you guys always get back your feedback forms? I found they weren't sending them back.

Funny thing, after the heat show Saturday I asked the Mother how she liked the party. She said she liked it but said it was hot.

Wayne -

How are you establishing control of the children's group, at the start of your show?

Personally, I do this through my warm-up, which involves talking briefly with the audience before my first piece of magic to music (in many cases, I start with magic to music. Not at birthdays, though).

Some audiences are great, ready to behave and enjoy, and don't really need this.

In a birthday party, sometimes you have to do this. I've seen Steve Taylor and others do this during a school show. Depending upon the show venue, you establish control in different ways.

You tell them your audience expectations, and also your guidelines for choosing volunteers. Then use positive reinforcement to get those behaviours.

P.S. Here's some threads:

Here is the one I was really looking for. Took me a little time to find it!

Dennis and Donald, I hope you do not mind if I add a few more:

Branding
SEO
USP
Social Media
A interesting handout business card the individual can have fun with, (for example Clipped Card).
