If you want to go to a theatre you must first look through the billboard to find out what is on. Some people don’t like to have seats far from the stage. They get tickets for the stalls. If you have little money you take seats on the gallery. When you come to any theatre you leave your coat in the cloak-room.

If you want to know the cast you buy a play-bill. You look through it to find out who plays the leading role in the performance you are going to see. After this you take your seat and wait for the lights to go down. Soon the lights go down, the curtain goes up and the play begins.
