{Llewellen and Ms. Mudd sit at a table at a sidewalk cafe}
Ms. Mudd: Millie said she's trying out for the school play today.
Sign: {backwards} The Sidewalk Cafe
Llewellyn: What are they performing?

{Millie is at the tryout holding a script}
Millie: Little Shop of Horrors
Sign: Play Tryouts Today
Sign: Scripts
