Alpha - Aerobics
A deck of custom alphabet cards is passed out to audience members for complete shuffling and mixing. The cards are collected and given to spectator to hold on to. They deal down several letter cards, and fan the cards looking at their faces. With a little bit of concentration, you immediately name all the letters in their hand.
For a kicker, you can now either have them, pick up the named off letter cards and try to form a word or they can discard that pile and deal down a few more cards to try to form a different word. Whichever way they choose, you have predicted the correct word thought of, either by a prediction in an envelope or you can write it down while the spectator is concentrating on their word.
This is a real stunner!
Add this right into your library and school shows. For corporate performers, this is a great way to introduce a product, spell out a client's name, etc...
