Today will keep me busy as I practice so I can be ready for my tradeshow. One additional activity I will be doing is learning new magic tricks in light of my script. The script will have me performing new magic tricks in order to highly my client’s services. I have had to learned how to effectively rehearse so that I can be ready. In addition, here is a website which gives tips on how to effectively rehearse: Tips For Rehersal.
The above website talks about musical rehearsals but these principles can apply to magic too! My favorite tip from the website is to keep rehearsals focused so that you get things done. The “to do” list is especially important to have because you get something meaningful done. Having this kind of rehearsals makes much better prepared for the real performance.
My “to do” rehearsal list will have me working on the toaster routine because it’s important. This part of my show takes a great deal of time so it’s important I get it right. The routine involves a toaster and peanut butter and jelly jars. The magician then loses control of the magic so it looks very comical! Comedy and surprise is very important part of my trade magic show because it keeps audience attention.
A good trade show magic presentation captures and holds the audience attention in order to communicate the company message. The show must captivate the attention of the audience so as to sell product or services. The magician will then turn the audience members over to the sales team afterwards. A trade show magician who works well will generate a lot of company leads and sales at their booth. You want to make it worth a company’s time to hire you as a trade show magician.
