The Stage Manager tells you that you are in a town named Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, in 1901. He tells you a bit about the town and points out the homes of the two families. The Webbs and the Gibbses. The mothers call the children to breakfast and get them ready and off to school. Then the two mothers stop for a bit of gossip while they work. The Stage Manager interrupts with some more information about the town, and then the children come home from school. Emily Webb promises to give George Gibbs some help with his homework. The town constable comes by to check that all is well, and the Stage Manager calls an end to this typical day in Grover's Corners. The Stage Manager tells you that Act II will be Love and Marriage.

The narrator cuts the play here and explains "this is the start of something new". Kelly starts to fall for Michael, and Sam and Olivia, start going out.

Josie who plays a girl that got murdered comes onto stage and says "I was the first, but there were more". She stood next to the screen and the there screams and bangs coming from behind the screen.
