    For the first part, they want you to write out the time that each play is showing in German. When Germans tell time, instead of saying "half past" they say "half until," and they also have a tendency to use army time in writing, so 19.30 would be "halb acht." What you want to say is "From half past seven, until eleven there is ,Tosca.'" Once you figure out the time, you can just copy the example for the rest. So, number 1 would be: Von halb acht bis elf Uhr gibt es ,,Tosca".

    For part two, you just need to translate the part in parenthesis into German. If it's a number, you need to use "mal" (times). i.e. "Einmal, Zweimal" (one time, two times) So, "twice an evening" would be "Zweimal im Abend." Remember, "im" changes based on the gender of the noun. "Abend" is masculine, and "in," in this case, is dative, so "der" becomes "dem," and "in dem" forms the contraction "im." "Woche," on the other hand, is Feminine, so it would be "in der Woche"
