A：Hello, Could I speak to Mary, please? This is Mrs. Fort here.
B：This is Mary speaking.
A：Ah, Mary, good evening. Look, I was wondering if you like to come to a party we are having on Friday? There are many coming from the office.
B：Oh, that sounds nice. I’d love to.
A：Good morning. Vane Theater, at your service.
B：Hello. I'm thinking about watching a Chinese traditional opera with a foreign girl. What's on this weekend?
A：Well, there will be charity performance on Saturday night. And also, there will be a solo concert by an opera star on Sunday night.
B：It's a good thing that I have choices here. Can you tell me about the one on Saturday?
A：Sure. It's to raise money for the homeless.
B：What about the performance itself?
A：Oh, it's a reserved opera named The Monkey Creates Havoc in Heaven.
B：Wow, a story about the clever Monkey King. It's a classic and children's favorite.
A：It surely is. And the cast is really the best.
B：Wonderful! How much is the ticket?
A：The price varies according to the seats. 300 for the front, 200 for the middle, and 50 for the back.
B：Hi, Jane. Are you going to call Ruth?
A：Yes, I'm calling her now. Hello, Ruth. It's me, Laura!
C：Laura? Hello! It's great to hear from you!
A：I'm just fine, Ruth, but I still really miss you very much.
C：I miss you too, Laura. I dream of the day when we can get together again. I'm determined to see you sometime soon. How are things going with you?
A：Pertty good, Ruth. I'm making some new friends, and school's Okay, but, on the other hand, I would lose my mind if I couldn't talk to you now and then.
