“The Day the Internet Died” takes place in the town of Bloomington when a devastating occurrence happens. No, it’s not famine, or floods, or loss of your basic rights. The internet has gone down! And it will continue to be down! For a week! A whole week! Pandemonium! In a world that is so dependent on the internet for shopping, mailing, and posting pictures of cute babies, how will society function? Not well as it turns out. The Day the Internet Died hilariously explores how inept we are at dating, research, and basic human interactions when we don’t have a screen to look at.
The IMPS Drama Department primarily consists of students in grades 7-12, but has cast members as young as kindergarten! This Spring’s performance follows the Drama Department’s Winter performance of “Carol vs. Christmas”. Ashley Spade, grade 10, is cast as “Sheriff Patricia”, and says those in attendance can “look forward to big laughs” and has loved working with advisor, Linda Carpenter. “She is amazing!” Carpenter was hired as the district’s Drama Department advisor last spring and has helped the program grow from the ground up.
