Script:  

  1. Girl:     Well, that wasn’t nearly as good as I thought it would be. It’s always that way

                 when you see a film after reading the book.

    Boy:      Yeah … I know what you mean – but I thought there were some interesting scenes.

    Girl:     Really? I was bored. Anyway – you should read the book.

    Boy:      I don’t think I want to. After seeing the film, I know how it will end!

 

  1. Woman: Can I help you?

    Man:    I hope so. I understand that if you buy five film tickets, you get one free ticket. Is that correct?

    Woman: Absolutely.

    Man:    Great! So I’d like to buy five tickets for Saturday.

    Woman: Ah, I’m afraid we can’t give free tickets for shows on Saturday or Sunday.

    Man:    Oh! OK, then give me five tickets for Friday.

    Woman: Yes, of course.

 

  1. Man:    You know, when I was young I couldn’t wait to leave this place. For me, the village was small and there was no chance for me to develop as an actor. And I was sure that no one realised how talented I was. I had to go to a big city so I went to New York – that was where people with talent could really develop. Moving to New York was very good for me professionally. But coming back here, I realise what a great place this is. It’s the kind of place I want my children to grow up in.

 

  1. Boy:      Hi, Lily. Where are you? Are you still at home?

    Girl:     Of course not. I was going to get the 7.30 train to Victoria Station – which is only a five-minute walk from the concert hall. But they just announced that the train will be an hour late.

    Boy:      So why don’t you get a taxi?

    Girl:     I’m trying to, but you can never find a taxi when you need one. Look, you’ve got the tickets. Leave my ticket for me outside at the ticket counter and go in without me. I’ll be there as soon as I can.

 

  1. Man:    Believe it or not, I’d always dreamed of being an opera singer. So, at 15, I started studying at a music school. At the end of the first year, they told me that they didn’t think I had a future in opera and suggested that I leave. I wasn’t angry or anything – in fact at the time, I remember feeling disappointed in myself – like I had failed some important test. But now I can see that it helped me. I really learned a lot about myself that year and I’m happy that I did it.

 

  1. Woman: This week’s recommended film is the teen musical Footloose. It’s a remake of the 1984 film. The original film starred Kevin Bacon – who gave a great performance. Even if you aren’t a fan of musicals, go to see Footloose! The plot is sometimes difficult to believe and the acting is unlikely to win any awards, but who cares? The song and dance routines are a pleasure to watch and you’ll be singing the songs all week!

 

  1. Boy:      Did you manage to get us tickets for the festival?

    Girl:     Yeah – you won’t believe how! There was a long queue at the ticket office when I got there and I didn’t have time to wait, so I decided to go back later. But, when I went back, there were no more tickets.

    Boy:      Oh, no! So what did you do?

    Girl:     While I was walking home, I saw Oliver. Anyway – it turns out he works with one of the bands at the festival. When I told him what had happened, he gave me two tickets – they didn’t cost a thing!

    Boy:      No way!

 

  1. Author:    I love the letters I get from my readers, some as young as seven. Kids don’t feel they have to be polite or say nice things. They really mean what they say. They say what they liked and what they didn’t like in a book. I always try to write back and explain why I wrote about a particular event or why a character behaved in a particular way. It’s the least I can do after they’ve gone to the trouble of reading my story and writing to me.
