Give thought, too, to the working of your tricks. Try not to repeat. You may have a trick that relies on your use of the Changing Bag for its working. If you have a second trick which involves a change, use a Drawer Box or similar. In this way, the audience won't suspect that the Changing Bag is all that important.
That's what I mean by 'variety'. Give them different things to look at.
It helps to keep them guessing.
3. When thinking of how to prepare for a Magic Show, choose tricks which will be appropriate for your expected audience. An obvious example would be "Swallowing a Sword" for a group of kindergarten children.
Similarly, you wouldn't do a match-box trick for a group of adults in a Town Hall. Avoid, or amend, tricks requiring a helper, if the audience members are all disabled. In other words, look ahead and choose your program to suit and please your expected audience.
