Last night I did a show to raise funds for Hannah’s elementary school’s Parent Advisory Committee. We held it at the local high school which I was told had just over 321 seats to sell. Using just a flyer we were able to sell over 250 tickets to the event and thought it would be a pretty full room.
Well it certainly was full! You see, although the sign above the door says the room capacity is 321, there are just 217 seat. So there we were with more folks than seats! Lots of folks were super nice and put their small ones on their laps and others sat on the steps of the theatre.
The show was lots of fun and they were a super loud audience. I added a couple of pieces to the show I had never done for audiences and they went really well. In fact I plan to add them to the new show I have begun to design called “Secrets – can you keep one…”
Well I’m off to Victoria for the Mirth and Magic show tonight …

Today was cleaning day. Ok, I guess the right thing to say is today was the first of many cleaning days. I have a bit of a break coming up in a week and I am going to take full advantage of it to clean, fix and paint the house. Oh I’m also working on a whole new routine for the show, preparing for the North American championship in Louisville, helping to produce the PCAM in California, shooting a new DVD on Torn 2 Pieces, replacing the kitchen floor, developing a routine for a song I heard, completing work on two new card effects I created and do a photo shoot. Did I mention I have a bit of a break coming up?
Would love to write more but I am a bit busy as I am preparing for a full show on Friday night at the Centennial Theatre in Coquitlam. It’s a fund raiser show for Rochester Elementary school. That’s right, Daddy’s doing a show for Hannah’s school. It a nice 300 seat theatre and with just one flyer we sold over 200 seats in a day. The next day I will be off to Victoria, BC to the Isabelle Reader Theatre in Langford to perform in the Magic & Mirth show. This year I will be closing the show and Murray Hatfield will be the Master of Ceremonies. It will be a special night as the Victoria Magic Circle will hold a Broken Wand Ceremony for Tony Eng.
