Ведущий 1 (В.1): Dear friends! Our dear guests!
Ведущий 2 (В.2): We welcome you on our party!
(В.1): We want to invite you to make a tour round the United States of America.
(В.2): We glad to be your guides & show you the Beauty of the country, its Nature
& Landscapes.
(В.1): We want you to get acquainted with the Culture of the United States: songs
that are still heard over the endless valleys & vast prairies of the country.
(В.2): We want you to listen to verses that are whispered & recited in big cities and
distant villages of the country.
(В.1): Let us go then, you and I,
When the evenings is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels.
(В.2): And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question…
Oh, do not ask, «What is it? »
Let us go and make our visit.
(В.1): The American Continent was discovered by Christopher Columbus, but many
years had gone through since the Northern Part of the Continent was settled by the
first Europeans of British origin.
(В.2): When the first settlers landed the eastern coast of the Continent, the start point
of our trip, they saw the magnificent wilderness of the country & narrow, crooked
Indian paths & ways. They understood that they should build their own road, full of
dangers & difficulties & courageously overcome it.
На сцене появляется хор. Звучит песня « Lonesome Road» в сопровождении
слайдов природы США.
(В.1): Year by year the American continent became more and more settled. A new
country appeared on the maps of the world. It name was «The United States of
(В.2): The history of the United States has a lot of pages. Some of them are brave,
proud & courageous, others are shameful and disgraceful.
(В.1): But nobody can deny that the United States of America played an important
role in the World History. Her Sons & Daughters gave their lives to glorify their
Motherland; they did their best to make the country rich & prosperous, to put down
the name «America» to the world history.
(В.2): O beautiful for pilgrim feet Whose stern unpassion’d stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat a cross the wilderness.
America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.
На сцене хор. Звучит песня «America, the Beautiful» в сопровождении слайдов
природы США.
После исполнения песни на ДВД-экране демонстрируется фильм
«Национальные парки США. Часть 2: Великие сокровища природы
(В.1): American Poets in their verses and poems tried to depict the everyday life of
common American people. They wrote about Love & Hate, the dreams& needs of
people around them.
(В.2): American Poetry is presented by poets, who belong to different classes &
races, generations & epochs. But all of them love their country, their folks. This
love, hopes for future better life found reflection in the American poetry.
На сцену выходят чтецы и читают стихи американских поэтов в оригинале.
На экране появляются слайды с портретами авторов и русским переводом.
Чтец 1 Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes.
Dream Deffered Несбывшаяся мечта
What happens to a dream deferred? Что стало с моею разбитой мечтой
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Быть может, она иссыхает от горя,
Or fester like a sore Как плод в невозможный
And then run? Сжигающий зной?
Does it stink like rotten meat? Как старый нарыв распускается
Or crust and sugar over гноем?
Like a syrupy sweet? Как мертвое тело, быть может,
Maybe it just sags like a heavy load смердит?
Or does it just explode? Быть может, как патока,
рот забивает?
И складками мыслей
на мне обвисает,
Как кожа, от бремени лет и обид.
Как зеркало бьется, но не исчезает
Чтец 2 Round about Midnight by Bob Rfufman.
Round about Midnight Круглую ночь
Jazz radio on a midnight kick, Радио-джаз о, это кстати
Round about Midnight круглую ночь
Sitting on the bed, С цыпкой из джаза
With a jazz type chick сижу на кровати
Round about Midnight, круглую ночь
Piano laughter, in my ears, Хохот рояля звенит в ушах
Round about Midnight. круглую ночь
Stirring up laughter, dying tears, Кто-то смеется, и чьи-то слезы
Round about Midnight. круглую ночь
Soft blue voices, muted grins, Грустный голос и смешки,
Excited voices, Father’s sins, взвинченность, отца грешки
Round about Midnight. круглую ночь
Come on baby, take off your clothes, Иди сюда детка, сбрось свое
Round about Midnight. платье на целую ночь.
Чтец 3 Fire & Ice by Robert Frost.
Fire and Ice Огонь и лед
Some say the world will end in fire, Кто говорит, мир от огня
Some say in ice. Погибнет, кто ото льда.
From what I’ve tasted of desire А что касается меня,
I hold with those who favor fire. Я за огонь стою всегда.
But if it had to perish twice, Но если дважды гибель ждет
I think I know enough of hate Наш мир земной, - ну что ж,
To say that for destruction ice Тогда для разрушенья лед
Is also great Хорош,
And would suffice. И тоже подойдет.
Чтец 4 The Arrow & the Song by Henry Longfellow.
The Arrow and the Song Стрела и Песня
I shot an arrow into the air, Стрелу из лука я пустил
It fell to earth, I knew not where; Не знал я, где она упала;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight Напрасно взор за ней следил,
Could not follow it in its flight. Она мелькнула и пропала.
I breathed a song into the air, На ветер песню бросил я:
It fell to earth, I knew not where; Звук замер где-то в отдаленьи…
For who has sight so keen and strong, Куда упала песнь моя
That it can follow the flight of song? Не мог сказать я в то мгновенье.
Long, long afterward, in an oak Немного лет спустя, потом
I found the arrow, still unbroke; Стрела нашлась, в сосне у луга,
And the song, from beginning to end, Свою же песню целиком
I found again in the heart of a friend. Нашел я в теплом сердце друга.
Чтец 5 Words by Sylvia Plath.
Words Слова
Axes Топоры,
After whose stroke the wood rings, После чьего удара дерево звени
And the echoes И эхо!
Echoes traveling Эхо, распространяющееся
Off from the center like horses. От центра, как лошади.
The sap Сок, бьющий ключом как слез
Wells like tears, like Как старанье воды
The water striving Восстановит свое зеркало
To re-establish its mirror Над скалой.
Over the rock
That drops and turns, Эти паденья и повороты,
A white skull, Белый череп,
Eaten by weedy greens. Съеденный сорняками.
Years later I Годами позже я
Encounter them on the road С ними столкнусь на дороге
Words dry and riderless, Слова сухие и потерявшие
The indefatigable hoof-taps. всадника,
While Неутомимо стучащие копытам
From the bottom of the pool, fixed stars Пока ото дна лужи
Govern a life. Укреплялись звезды,
Направляющие жизнь.
На сцене исполняется песня – романс «Let me Call your Sweetheart». После
исполнения романса на экране показываются портреты Роберта Фроста и
Эмили Дикинсон. Звучат стихи в оригинальном исполнении.
Robert Frost
Road not take
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Emily Dickinson
You left me, sweet, two legacies,
A legacy of love
A heavenly Father would content,
Had he the offer of;
You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

short stories by O’Henry?

an orphan & he lives with his aunt Polly. She is a very kind person & she loves
him dearly.

certainly not a modal boy.

Background: Aunt Polly’s House. Aunt Polly entering the stage with a broom, a
bucket and a duster in her hand. She dressed in a dress, an apron and a laced cap.

poor thing, and I haven’t got the heart to beat him. Where is that boy, I wonder?
(She looks everywhere. Tom appears in the window& hides under the table. Aunt
Polly comes to the window and cleans it with the duster.)

-Sid! Come over here! (She sits down on the chair by the table. Sid comes in. He
dresses neatly in a shirt and Shorts, with a stylish hairdo.)
-What shall I do with Tom? Yesterday he ate that jam and almost poisoned the cat.
I made these trousers a week ago and he has torn them to pieces already. (Shows
the torn trousers with the large back hole.)
Sid: Yes, mom!
Aunt Polly: Come here. Have you seen Tom?
Sid: Yes, mom! (Tom shows him his first) No…, Auntie, I don’t think I have…
Aunt Polly: Oh, you don’t think you have!
Sid: You see, auntie, I’d rather…It’s like this…
Aunt Polly: Hush! Where have you seen him? Is he hiding somewhere like a rat in
the corn? But I’ll get hold of him and I’ll give him a good licking. (Tom is making
faces. Sid stars laughing.)And you too. (Mary comes in dancing & singing.) Mary,
have you seen Tom?
Mary: Here he …(Tom shows a first.) Here he was a moment ago. (A meowing is

Aunt Polly: Hang the boy; will I ever learn him anything? (A loud meowing is
heard, then the sound of gravel striking the window.)

Aunt Polly: Don’t «What» me, naughty boy. I’m hoping to skin you alive and no
Tom: Auntie, what have I done?
Aunt Polly: Well, you have done enough these few days. Last evening I left two
cakes in the cupboard, and now there is only one there. Can you explain that?
Tom: I guess it was so dark I didn’t see the other.
Aunt Polly: Mary, go and call Jim, tell him to fetch that long-handled brush and
bucket of whitewash. Tom, you have got to whitewash to fence. And mind, do it
Tom: Oh, auntie. I can’t, I’ll do it tomorrow. Forgive me and let me go.
Aunt Polly: Tom! That’s enough. Toy must go and work. (Turns to the audience.)
Everybody must go and work!
