Hi Bob,  How's life down in Florida?  We may be coming down your way the 
middle of June.

As to your questions

I have no idea.  I think I would get a hernia trying to carry around my 
battery powered system around my waist!

I think you need to bite the bullet and redesign the show - or just save it 
for when you perform in a real theater or evening performances (but not 
during daylight savings :-) )  .  Yes, I know, black light works wonderful 
if you can get a black out - but I don't think they exist in schools any 
longer.  I remember years ago when I worked for Puppetworks, and we did a 
black light segment in a show - a spaceship traveling through the 
stars.  Under black light it was great.  Under klieg lights it looked like 
Styrofoam on a stick (which it was).  Not a pretty sight.
