et cetera)

emotional, or otherwise
Your topic AND script have to be approved by Forrest; your script
also needs to be approved by the adult involved in your Invisible
Theatre (examples: teacher, administrator, parent, et cetera)
Any adult involved in your performance may stop the
performance if they feel the situation is getting out of control
You may not use students outside of the class to perform your
Invisible Theatre but you may use other students in the class if
