I want to do a disappearing act at the end of a performance I'm doing on July 4th. The desired effect of the trick is that I somehow disappear from the stage. What are the easiest/least expensive methods that I could feasibly do, without anything like trapdoors in the stage?

The stage is elevated off the ground a few feet, and it 's closed off from the sides. There are no curtains, or ways that I can escape the stage save for some obvious staircases on the sides.

Here is the most practical idea I've come up with: a cardboard gravestone, with a trick to it. The red ball represents me. Pardon my use of MS Paint.


Anyone else have ideas for disappearing tricks?

Put a hat on it, as people are smart, and also attach a fishing line to the top of the facade and through a hole in the gravestone so you can "magically" raise it up and re-appear

I don't wear a hat, but if I do it right, I could see a way to take my jacket off and throw it over to make the thing fall. That effect could be interesting.

About the fishing line, I could do that, but I'd also have to not do that thing with the jacket.

I would say make the dark gray area a little wider than the light gray area in that picture, so when the "gravestone" falls down, people aren't able to clearly see the divide in the cardboard.

Not a hat you wear, a hat as in a top to the container!

The container that has me? Where would this top go?
