There was a flash of light, then, darkness. It had begun.

 The marvellous, red, velvet curtains swayed gracefully to the side. The luxurious golden frame making its way around the outside of the curtains. The soft lights flickered on and off, twirling around the glamorous room, and landed on a figure in the middle of a stage, posing dramatically. A booming voice bellowed, “To be or not to be, that, is the question!” The audience gasped, as they remained  glued to their seats in anticipation. 

A thunderous round of  applause rang out, and the plush curtains fell back into place.
