The Internet is down…
What are we going to do?!?!?

On a sunny day in the town of Bloomington, 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 Day the Internet Died is written by Ian McWethy and Jason Pizzarello, directed by Pam Jorgensen and Laura Whitaker, features lighting and sound design and effects by Stuart Wilson; scenic construction and painting, costuming, hair and makeup, and technical work by Huntley High School Scenic Crew, Studio Crew, and Tech Crew members.
