It is time for the senior drama class to put on their annual show.
MS. CARLSON OK. Can I see a show of hands? How many of you decided your senior drama project should be Hello, Dolly?
[No hands go up.]
MS. CARLSON (CONT'D) All right. Then I guess we have a unanimous decision. We'll do Our Town. Correct?
[Still no hands go up.]
MS. CARLSON Well, am I right? (Kim puts up her hand.)
MS. CARLSON (points to her) Yes, Kim?
KIM Well, we've been talking.
MS. CARLSON Yes?
KIM And, well, we decided we want to put on our own show.
MS. CARLSON Well, of course, you want to put on your own show. That's why I gave you a choice.
KIM I mean, we want to create our own original show.
MS. CARLSON OK. Mind telling me what kind of show?
KIM You've heard of the Sunrise Movement?
MS. CARLSON Of course.
KIM Well, we want the show to be our contribution to it.
