Recently, the Takarazuka Revue was playing The Rose of Versailles. I wanted to see it, but on checking(1) the online ticket shop, I discovered it was sold out. I needed to get “toujitsu-ken,” or “same-day tickets.” In getting(2) toujitsu-ken, you should arrive(3) at the box office before it opens. I didn’t go early enough. When I arrived, I was surprised at(4) the long lines of people. The people at the front may have(5) come much earlier than I did. I regretted not having come(6) sooner. However, I thought, “There is no going back(7) now.” I knew I would get “tachi-mi-ken,” or “standing tickets.” When I got to the front, I was shown(8) a map of the theater. I was surprised! There was one remaining seat in which(9) I could sit! I chose it right away. I was very lucky, and being able to sit down while I watched the show made me(10) very happy.
