The show[edit]

The show begins with a girl reading her great grandma Elizabeth's journal again. In the journal, her grandma meets a boy and they are having a great time until The Chicago Fire ruins their fun. Then they go to present time and the girl is told to not think about the past and go into the city and have some fun at Club IgNight. Then, a DJ comes out and starts a dance party. In the middle of the show, the same thing that happened to her Grandma Elizabeth happens to her, without a disaster. To end the show My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boy plays while many rounds of Pyrotechnics launch and go along with the music.
