Une hôtesse vous reçoit sans ménagement.

« Good evening Madame, monsieur,

We would like to welcome you to this special event.

We are delighted to have all here with us this evening.

We hope that you have a most pleasant experience

amongst us.

Actually we don’t know how many people fit in the stand,

an audience is an audience… In any case, we really cannot

have more than that numbers of chairs on stage.

Do not try to share your succes with someone else. Compris?

Please respect the numbers. Please respect the colors.

Will you please respect the order of things!

Even if you don’t have a number, get your own place

or fight a bear!

Regardless of your situation, when you have finished

finding your own place, don’t hesitate to move as desired... »
