FRIDA: So, what are we doing here, exactly?
CARL: Well, assuming we actually exist…
FRIDA: What do you mean?
CARL: Well, for all you know, we could just be pixels on a screen, devoid of…
FRIDA: Carl, you’re creeping me out again.
CARL: Okay, okay, let’s just read what’s on the teleprompt, okay?
FRIDA: Sounds like a good idea to me.
CARL: Are there teleprompters in the vast expanses of the internet?
FRIDA: Carl, just read it.
CARL: Alright. Ahem. Point Grey Secondary has a vibrant theatre program, with drama and acting courses available at all grade levels.
FRIDA: Drama is available for grades 8, 9, and 10, while Acting 11/12 is available for senior students.
CARL: I get it! So that the younger students get to learn the basics, and…
FRIDA: Carl, just keep reading, okay?
CARL: Point Grey also offers a bi-yearly Musical Theatre elective, which is open to students in senior grades. The musical is produced and preformed by students, and generally have 4-6 showings at the end of the year.

CARL: And if that didn’t work out, I could always try sound crew, where I’d learn to work the school’s lightboard and audiomixers.
FRIDA: Yeah, you bet.
CARL: So, now what?
FRIDA: Now what, what?
CARL: The prompter turned off.
FRIDA: Maybe it’s a power outage?
CARL: It can’t be a power outage. We’re on the internet. There’s no such thing as a power outage in webspace.
FRIDA: Perhaps if we step away quietly…
CARL: Brilliant! No one will ever know we were here!
FRIDA: And I can go back to memorizing Hamlet’s soliloquy…to be, or not to be…
