Lesson 17 At the Theatre

1. Look at the picture and match the numbers with the words.

2. Read the text about the theatre and ask four questions on it.


Many people go to the theatre nowadays. I like going there because our theatre stages interesting modern and classical plays.

The performances usually begin at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. I always come to the theatre ten or twenty minutes before the performance begins. I enjoy walking round the foyer, watching the portraits of theatre actors and actresses. I also like just to examine the balcony, boxes, pit, dress-circle and stalls. The atmosphere is unusual in the theatre. I feel very comfortable and relaxed there.

At 5.55 p.m. I take my seat in the stalls. During the performance everybody is quiet. Usually the cast and scenery are fantastic.
