I have been developing a routine for the effect in which a volunteer's tennis shoe is accidentally fried to a crisp in a faulty machine that was supposed to clean it and is then restored.
In searching out presentation ideas, I have watched a number of performers presenting this effect. However, all the examples I found were at family shows. I wonder if anyone has some thoughts on whether or not this is a good effect for school shows? and why/why not?
As always, I would appreciate any advice you can offer,
