On The Trap Door is an outgrowth of our Trap Door Production trick. These custom branded stage management mats are great when you need a place for them to stand & stay put. Whether you have 2 or 5 participants – you’re in control in a very fun and encouraging way!
This is a perfect tool for any type of entertainer or speaker that deals with anxious spectators. This is brilliant psychology in which to easily manage several people on stage at a time and allow you to focus on what matters most. These fun artistic mats reinforce positive behavior versus being placed in a situation where you are forced to be stern or come across in a negative manner. Be the pro at stage management, embrace the situation….. make them feel like the most important person or people on stage — The Star!
The funny bits come into play when you ask each participant to “stand right here on the trap door” and tell them not to move because they are now the star of the show (funny how you tell each of them the same thing while gaining a laugh from the audience). You just never know what’s going to happen with a trap door.
This can also act as a great filler spot in your routine with a game of Simon Says or another game in which one of your participants is indeed elected to become “The Star”.
Add the Trap Door Production trick and you have a great way to introduce the mats or even present someone with a final prize. Each individual mat measures 18 inches by 18 inches while the Trap Door Production trick (your large mat) measures 22 inches by 26 inches.
NOTE: All On The Trap Door mats are custom made and branded with your name. We will confirm what name you would like on them and we will also send you a proof after you place your order. We are happy to work with you one-on-one on this project!
