What constitutes stage magic. I guess it means anything that is performed on a stage. A year or so ago I took the large stage illusions out of this category and put them by themselves. That still left me with over 850 stage tricks. One of my favorite effects is “The Amazing Soda Machine,” which we make here in Daytona Beach. “Appearing” and “Vanishing” Canes are fun for everyone to do. Even if you only do close-up magic, buy a few stage effects and entertain the family at Holiday time.
