Yes. It is dreaded. Because I'm a close-up magician. Now that you know that, let's continue. Event:- Farewell. Target audience:- Classes tens and twelves (ages 16 to 18). Teachers will be present too, so nothing too ''inappropriate''. Venue:- School Hall. Large sized hall but cannot be provided with screens. So, I have only a mic, and a trusted voice. Everything else's visibility depends upon the size, unfortunately. Audience no.- About 200 Skill level:- Close-up. Limitations:- Book test or anything too-mentalismy...(altho I have a feeling only mentalism can save me here) not because I don't like it, but because I've already performed a book test in front of the whole school once (my first thread here, aah the nostalgia! ) Notable books in my possession:- RRTCM, Bobo's, ECT, Practical Mental Magic, Mark Wilson's. Time:- 5 minutes. No. of tricks:- 2. One EXTREMELY short one as an opener. Another good, hard-hitting, worth-remembering-for-life one. Date:- 1st Feb, although I have to be sure of what I'm performing at least by 31st November, end of this month. I should be sure, rather. Which means a lot, lot time to practice, but not much time to decide... Intensity of desire to receive help from you guys?:- More than the largest infinity. Please?
