Hello, I am currently working on putting together 2-3 different shows that I am hoping to do for parties and special events. So far I have one story ready with my two main characters and am planning to write two more stories for it. What I would like to know are some of the basic things I should do in preparing my shows and putting on my performances. -What is the best way to charge? -What are the best methods of self-promotion? -What are the best way to keep the audience entertained for 30 minutes or less? These are just some of the basic questions I have about the work I am trying to do. All pieces of advice and opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you. Zach S.
