Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
Hey, Paul. You're an actor, right?
What do you think about this idea?
I think it's great.
Absolutely. I mean, for the people in town, there's sometimes not a lot going on, not a lot to do-
there's not even a movie theater nearby.
And if you want to see a professional show,
you have to travel-I think the nearest professional theater's like an hour away.
Yeah, plus those professional plays can be really expensive.
I saw one last semester and the ticket cost me like 40 dollars.
Right, so it'll be good for people to have another entertainment option, an opportunity to see live shows that won't be so expensive.
Plus, it would definitely be helpful for us actors....
Yeah, because, on some nights, there's not a lot of people that go, not a lot of people there to watch us . . . and that can have a bad effect on the show-it might not be as good.
Yeah, I can imagine it must be a completely different energy for you and the other actors if the seats are half empty.
Exactly.Like, if the show is a comedy and it's supposed to be funny...
in order for it to really seem funny, there needs to be a lot of people there to laugh at the jokes...
otherwise, it just doesn't seem as humorous.
Having a crowd there laughing at the jokes really helps the show along...
helps it to be good.
That makes sense.
So this proposal would help that.
Yeah, help make it more likely that there'd be a full house, a lot of people watching.
