Scene: Graduation Day at the high school auditorium
(All the characters are seated on stage, waiting for the ceremony to begin)
Mr. Johnson: Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to the graduation ceremony of the class of 2021.
Sarah: (whispering to Emily) I can't believe we made it. It feels like yesterday when we started high school.
Emily: (whispering back) I know, right? And now we're graduating with honors.
Tom: (interrupting) Hey, guys, did you hear about the guy who invented Lifesavers? He made a mint.
Jake: (rolling his eyes) Tom, can you please stop with the jokes? This is a serious occasion.
Mrs. Smith: (whispering to Grandma) Your grandson looks so handsome in his graduation gown.
Grandma: (beaming with pride) Thank you, dear. I'm so proud of him.
Mr. Johnson: (clearing his throat) Now, without further ado, I would like to introduce our valedictorian, Sarah, to give the commencement speech.
(Sarah stands up and walks to the podium)
Sarah: (nervously) Thank you, Mr. Johnson. Fellow graduates, family, and friends, today marks the end of our high school journey and the beginning of a new chapter in our lives.
Tom: (whispering to Jake) I hope she doesn't start singing "Let It Go" from Frozen.
Jake: (whispering back) Shut up, Tom.
Sarah: (continuing) We have all worked hard to get to this point, and we should be proud of our accomplishments.
Emily: (whispering to Sarah) You're doing great. Just ignore Tom.
Sarah: (smiling) Thank you, Emily. (clearing her throat) In closing, I want to say that the future is full of possibilities, and I have no doubt that we will all achieve great things.
(Tom stands up and starts clapping)
Tom: Bravo! Encore!
(Everyone stares at him in disbelief)
Mr. Johnson: (shaking his head) Thank you, Sarah, for those inspiring words. Now, let's proceed with the presentation of diplomas.
(One by one, the graduates walk up to the stage to receive their diplomas. As Jake walks up, he trips and falls, causing his gown to come off, revealing his underwear)
Jake: (mortified) Oh, no!
Tom: (laughing) Nice boxers, Jake!
(Everyone bursts out laughing, including the principal and the guidance counselor)
Mrs. Smith: (wiping away tears) This is the best graduation ceremony ever!
Grandma: (smiling) I couldn't agree more.
(The curtain falls)
