My dad, the magician blog
I learnt from my step-dad that if you muck up a magic trick then you should drop the trick, literally onto the floor, and move onto the next trick. This bamboozles the audience. I will make sure I try it. I hope it works.
Today, Pam Hardiman and Dan Thompson came into the room to see our progress. I performed the tricks to them. I took a deep breath and tried to calm myself. I need as much experience performing magic in front of audiences as possible. Pam nearly fell off her seat when I showed her the three rope trick. "And I was looking to see how you did it!!" she shouted. I hope the children give me that reaction too.
Laura and I are quietly concentrating on sorting out the talking bits inbetween songs. The script, I suppose you could call it. Tomorrow, I will work on songs.
Remember, if you muck up, just drop everything on the floor.
Night night, Tom xxx
