Lesson 35 Theatres Are Fun!
It’s Saturday evening. Li Ming is talking to Jenny and Danny online.
Guess what? I saw a big poster for the new Kung Fu Dinosaur movie on my way home.
Kung Fu Dinosaur really looks like Danny.
Did you know that Danny is a good actor, Li Ming?
We performed a play in class. It was so much fun!
Really? What play did you perform?
The Fisherman and the Goldfish.I played the poor but handsome fisherman,and Jenny was the fisherman’s wife.
I will send you the photos we took in class later.
Please do! I can’t wait to see them.
Everyone in our group did a good job. Some research was done in order to make the play.
We learned about some good plays and famous playwrights!
I know William Shakespeare is a great playwright. I watched his Hamlet last year.
Yes, many famous works in English were written by him.
Are his works all tragedies? I prefer comedies.
Actually, his early plays were mainly comedies and historical pieces.
But most of his famous works are tragedies. They are well known around the world.
We have some excellent playwrights and famous plays in China.
Cao Yu’s Thunderstorm and Lao She’s Teahouse have been on stage for many years – and still are today.
Interesting! I would love to go to the teahouse one day.
I guess Teahouse is a play, not a place.
You are right, Jenny. But we do have a Lao She Teahouse in Beijing.
People can have tea and watch plays or operas there.
What a wonderful theatre! People can enjoy tea and plays at the same time.
Great! I hope to go to the Teahouse and watch Teahouse.
