At that point, the main method passes control to the method named playTheShow.

When that method completes all of its tasks, it returns control to the main method, which has nothing more to do.

When the main method runs out of tasks, the program essentially becomes dormant waiting for you to click the Stop button at the top of the WorldRunning window shown in Figure 7.
