    NARRATOR: Listen to a conversation between a student and the professor of her theater class.

    FEMALE STUDENT: So, Professor Baker…about our next assignment you talked about in class…MALE PROFESSOR: Yes, this time you’ll be in groups of three.Each of you will have a chance to direct the other two in a short scene from a play you’ve chosen yourself…

    FEMALE STUDENT: Right, and, well… I’ve been reading about story theatre, and…MALE PROFESSOR: Ah, story theatre. Tell me about what you’ve read.

    FEMALE STUDENT: Well…it’s a form of theater where folk- or fairy tales are acted out.It was, uh… introduced by the director Paul Sills, in the 1960s.In Sills’s approach, an actor both narrates and acts out a tale.So, like, someone will appear on stage, and then they’ll start narrating a tale about, say, a king.And then the same person will immediately switch to and start acting out the role of the king. With no props or scenery.

    MALE PROFESSOR: Sills. Y’know, I actually saw his first story theatre production, in 1968.He did the fairy tale “The Blue Light.”

    FEMALE STUDENT: Really? So…whatever gave him the idea to produce that?MALE PROFESSOR: Well… As you know, back in the late 1960s lots of people in the United States were disillusioned with the government.Sills was grappling with how to produce theater that was… relevant in such times.Then he happened to read “The Blue Light,” and he realized it had just the message he wanted.

    See, in the story, a man who’s lost all hope as a result of the unfortunate events in his life completely turns his life around…with the help of a magical blue light.So, the blue light in the story symbolizes a way out of seemingly unsolvable human problems.And for Sills, that light symbolized an answer to the political turmoil in the U.S.

    FEMALE STUDENT: But weren’t you…um, audiences…bothered that the actors were performing on a bare stage?MALE PROFESSOR: Well, story theatre is a departure from traditional dramatic theater…with its realistic, elaborate props and scenery.But Sills could make us “see”… say, a big, tall mountain…through the facial expressions and body movements of the actors—and their telling of the story.We were all swept up, energized by such an innovative approach to theater—even if one or two of the critics weren’t as enthusiastic.

    FEMALE STUDENT: Cool. So, uh, anyway… What I really wanted to ask… I’d love to try doing story theatre for my project, instead of just a scene from a traditional play.MALE PROFESSOR: Hmmm… That’s possible—a -a short tale can be about the same length as a single scene… Which fairy tale would you do?

    FEMALE STUDENT: Actually, I was reading about another director of story theatre? Rex Stephenson?You know—he produces plays based on folk tales as well. Maybe I could direct one of those?

    MALE PROFESSOR: Ohhhhkay, yes—Rex Stephenson.Now, Stephenson’s style of story theatre is a little different from Sills’s— He’ll use simple props…a chair will represent a mountain…but the significant difference is with the narrator…the narrator will play only that role.Let’s talk about why…

  • 请听一段学生和教授关于戏剧课的对话。






    看,在故事里,一个因生命中的不幸而失去了所有希望的男子,在有魔力的蓝光的帮助下,完全反转了人生。 16:所以,故事中的蓝光象征了一种解决看似无法解决的人类问题的方法。而对于西尔斯来说,这光象征了一种对于美国政治动乱的答复。

    选项分析:对话一开始,教授以为女学生是问作业的角色分配问题。女学生明确了story theater问题,教授解释半天。半天之后,女学生才说So, uh, anyway… What I really wanted to ask…,依据定位可知B选项正确。
