Konrad brings everything necessary for the show with him, including a portable sound system powered by a battery, so that everyone can hear him. 🙂 No table or chair is needed. A glass of drinking water is possibly a welcome thing. 🙂
It is best to place the show in such a way that everyone can sit on one side of the magician – not behind and not on the sides, for the magic not to escape us. 😉 Children can sit on chairs or on the floor.
To help children focus on the show, it’s good to take care of removing any potential distractions:
That’s not a recommended option. Rain, wind, sun shining in the eyes, street noises, insects and potentially other random situations – all of these can unfortunately disrupt or even stop the show. An open-air show is a bit like watching a movie on your smartphone on a tram instead of on the couch at home. 😉 Therefore, whenever possible, it’s best to do the show indoors.
Sometimes, at first children may be afraid of the big stranger who has just come to them, so it is better to avoid surprise shows with younger children. It’s much better to tell the children a few days in advance what they can expect – that a funny Mr. will visit them and that he will show them magic tricks.
We also recommend not to scare the kids with jokes like “If you are naughty, Mr. Wizard will come and turn you into a frog!” or “Be polite or Mr. Magician will make you disappear!” It may seem funny, but it can make younger children feel negative about the show and even cry at the mere sight of a big stranger magician. Even though he’s definitely not scary. 🙂
Konrad probably could do it – but who could stand it? Konrad’s task is to give the children best possible memories from the meeting with a magician, and not to make them fall asleep from boredom after the fortieth trick in a row. If you want to keep your children busy for a long time – we also recommend employing other artists or animators as well. It’s good to ask Konrad about it, he will gladly recommend someone for sure. 🙂
